    Lots of places coating headers today.
    Jet Hot was the original starting in 1982.

    I chose Jet-Hot Recent to coat my New Hooker Super Comp #4202 Round port headers for my TA.
    Bought the 2500 F Coating in Titanium Silver.
    Plan on Nitrous Power adder hits & its what the Tech Guys recommended for my application.

    Got my Email notification my Headers are done & shipped off to me.
    Will have them next week early on.

    Expensive the 2500 F.
    But its the best there is.

    $660 bare steel the 4202 Hookers sell for new now on Summit Racing.
    High temp paint lasts just 1 year, I have tried it in the past.

    A nice Dragazine article Read I found tonight on Jet Hot 2500 F Ultra High Temp.
    They say it's Actually good for 4200 F in the article.

    Got my Trans Am Headers back.
    Look good.
    Titanium silver.
    Looks strange closeup.
    We are all used to the Shiny Silver.
    Last set of headers for my TA I had Jet Hot coat in Shiny 1300 F Silver.
    1st time I raced The car hard the coating got hot spots and changed color .
    Blistered frosty .
    1300 F is for show and cruising only.

    Racing you need the 2000 F.

    Or 2500 F Ultra Jet Hot.
    You don't get shiny silver mirror finish though.

    Titanium Silver 2500 F featured in Dragazine article.

    Get my Header pics up soon.

    There is a reason why Most Drag Racers Run Bare Steel Headers .
    No typical coating holds up.
    Blisters burns off .

    Swain Tech Coatings is real expensive also.

    Over $700 I spent for the Jet Hot Ultra 2500 F Titanium Silver.
    UPS Shipping I paid included both ways also.

    $660 bare steel the Hooker 4202's cost now new.
    Coated from Hooker $950.
    Not High Temp either.
    Cruiser street coated.

    There is a Drag Racer left on the Trans Am Forum.
    I am no longer there Grumpy.
    He does not like Old Skool and rest of them either.
    Gary keeps posting funny stuff.
    He is sick of 14-15 second advice.

    Birdman still there.
    He knows.....recalls me.
