Stay away from heat wrap it traps moisture. Heat coating is worth the money.

Ceramic coat bro is the way to go! (hey that rhymed lol) Im inthe process of doing it myself. Im doing the DP, UIM, LIM and exhaust for now, as i have no reason to take apart the hot side. "Some" say there is no benefit to the intake side, but i figure it cant hurt and should benifit in my eyes. Plus it will look better. So ya....ceramic is the choice!!

"Some say" there isnt, but i talked with a few different companys that do the procedore and they say it does.

Its supposed to keep heat in, but some of the guys that think they know all say that thats the only thing its good for. But the companys said opposite, and that it does also help in preventing to keep the engine bay heat out. So it works as a blocker and a holder.......

i guess it keeps the intake from absorbing heat pulled away from the radiator.........

coating is not limited to supressing temps on the ebay..

it also aids in increasing flow via exhaust temp...

actual temps of the exhaust drops as it exits..

some of which is the result of the cooler exhaust piping..

maintaining the temps via hot coating through the exit will aid in better flow....
