Sure they look great on the exaust,but do they hold up? Also do they really keep the heat within in the pipe better than stock as they claim? I am thinking about the chrome finish look for my sled. Has anyone done theres?

[attachment=93132:attachment][attachment=93133:attachment] I had it done on both my sleds. So far, no problems. I really cant tell if they help the heat stay in the pipe, but I have ridden in pretty varying temps and notice very little change in performance. It does make the pipe look 1000% better.

I am going to do mine, I would like to know what others paid. Supposedly it won't corrode, or turn burnt blue. Supposedly it withstands heat, and cools faster. Not sure why there would be a performance gain, but some claim there is. Either way, I will do it so it stays looking nice.

brunter, not so much as a performance gain but maybe a more even performance. The sled will make its most power with a warmed up pipe. If the pipe stays at a lets say consistent temperature, performance will be more consistent, hence the ceramic coating keeps the heat in. Dont know if you"d even notice the differance except maybe on a dyno. If for any reason you do it it looks awseome

Just wondering, can you do ceramic coatings on EFI? I thought I read it does have performance issues but it sounds like you guys haven't noticed any change, so I wouldn't think it would be a big deal!!

If you want pretty, coat your pipe. If you want to put heat IN the pipe and make horsepower Swain your pistons.
