All the Ceramic coating I have ever seen are Dull silver. But they stay that way.
So they never get wierd coloring like SS does.

Do a test.Hook them up run the car for 10 minutes.

THen turn if off. come back in 5 minutes and feel the heat. If it cool enough to touch you have what you asked for. my times might be off, but you get the idea.

Ceramic coated headers are not as good a just stainless steel ones. The Ceramic coating was a old hod rod trick to keep the heat out of the engine bay. Now a days cars are designed to draw the hot air out of the engine bay once you start to drive.

So if you factor in years of use the stainless are better as they are not heat stressed as much as headers with the coating.

Just 2 cents of useless info.
