    Coating never hurts, it's for sure better than heat wrap when going for looks and will also keep the heat inside the headers instead of the engine bay. I don't know any places off hand that do that. You may need to search around your area for places that do.

    I sure do appreciate it. These were my thoughts but wanted to run it by you. Think I'll be doing TSP then. Thanks again my friend and I hope your weekend is awesome!

    Part 2

    As far as performance gains go, just slapping a set of headers on a supercharger application won't be a major bump is power. Boost pressure will drop as it flows better but power output on the same pulley size won't be like 40-50+ hp most of the time. Application dependent it could be only 20-25hp in some cases.

    Yeah ARH and Kook sure are a pretty penny. Sometimes it's more about flashy names and "cool" factor. Like ARH just posted on here about a new hemi exhaust system that costs $1,400 for simple piping, some exhaust tips and a long muffler. Anyone with common sense would know it's not worth the money when only the muffler is changing the sound. Someone could purchase a $100-300 muffler and have it installed for far less money for the same gain.

    Though things like quality and great fitment are something that does come with on the headers.
    I'd personally maybe go with TSP's over speed engineering headers. TSP will be slightly better quality and they can be bought with cat's where as the SE's can't be bought that way. I've installed a set of SE's on a GMT-900 with great fitment but ideally welding everything together or band-clamping to slip fits would have made everything for sure leak free.
