Gotcha gotcha. I have ceramic headers on my car now and I didnt think they were coated both sides. Might have been its been a few years since I put them on and didnt really examine to determine if the ceramic was on the inside.

jake99buell I was lookin for more info on this and came across thread in the ls1 forums where a rep from Jett-Hot was trying to do damage control over a guys pipes. Long story short the rep stated the ceramic coating needed to be cleaned and polished about once month for It to hold up. The guy then should a pic of the inside of the pipes ate up with rust that was coated and how the F*ck do I polish the inside?!? This has nothing to do with the barkers because his pipes were mild steel and he was running race gas but if moisture stays in the inside of pipes will the ceramic break down?

Someguy From my experience Ceramic coating is on both sides..

tbird88 I dont think the coating is inside the pipe, i didnt really pay any attention to it when it was new. All I can tell know is that there is that black soot all in the inside of the header, the header isnt going to rust anyway because its made from stainless steel material stock is stainless too probally a cheaper grade of stainless.

Greg50Lt the ceramic coatings are all on the exterior of the exhaust. Nothing inside. The ceramic coating is not as smooth and the bare metal exhaust on the inside and that would slow exhaust flow down.

jake99buell So it just looks cool then! Did you notice if the coating was inside the pipe? I've heard that's where the advantage is because it won't rust from the the inside out slowing your exhaust speed and negating the benefits of an aftermarket header.

tbird88 The ceramic coating doesnt keep any heat off your leg at least not on a 700xx exhaust. I thought different about the ceramic coating but after getting it i will probally never get another one. The only difference i can tell is that it cools off quicker after you shut it off after a ride.But header temp. is a little lower at operating temps. but you cant tell it on your leg.

jake99buell Does anybody know how much heat the ceramic coating keeps off your leg? I wrapped my stock header because of the heat but if I buy a Barkers I don't want to damage it with header wrap. Also is the coating inside the pipe?
