    Any pro's/con's...

    I have TACOROCK's cilver ceramic JBA's, just wondering if it's a bad idea or not. I know the reduce lots of heat in engine bay...

    Any input?

    if you want to rock on!! but just know its pretty expensive and they are already silver ceramic headers.. so alot of the heat is pushed through your exhaust compared to steel or alluminu,

    Yeah I guess you're right. I didd'nt think it would be expensive. If thats the case I got better stuff to spend cash on...

    I have exhaust wrap covering my exhaust manifold and down pipe on my supra. It definitely helps with the heat, but it is a huge pain to work around when you have to (fiberglass rash is the worst) and over time it flakes and tears away. Ceramic coating will help keep a lot of the heat down like mentioned above. You might look into making some simple heat shields. On an NA vehicle, I wouldn't worry about wrapping the headers too much.
