Header coating question
Looking for some advice on what to get headers wise. I know I will be getting shorty headers (don't wanna deal with the hassle of long tubes), and I'm thinking about the Edelbrock shortys, but the real question I have is: is the coating that they come with really that important, outside of aesthetics? I know ceramic coating is going to keep the heat in the engine bay down a bit, but is that really going to matter very much on a purely street truck? Here are the ones that I'm lookin at...the first 2 or 3.

I really would recommend you spend your money elsewhere rather than shortys. If you still go forth, I would recommend Jet Hot coating.Black Bear Performance- Custom Tuning Solutions

Go with American Racing Headers, got them on my truck, best set of headers Ive ever owned, and id never buy any other brand after owning these. They are not inexpensive by any means but they dont leak and the coating is very durable.1999 Silverado Regular Cab Short Box

Shortys really aren't that much different than your stock manifolds, so your performance yield will be next to nothing considering the money you spend on them. Also, your handheld can not tune for the cam, nor the headers that you are planning.
