thats what im hoping for....ie no shipping

but powder only withstands up to lik 600 deg
and that wont cut it for boost temps:( wish it would tho) i actually thought about buying the kit from eastwood

i think that stuff just makes it look pretty, but doesnt help for heat temps.

have you thought about header wrap? ive wrapped my hand around a turbo header of a running car with this stuff.

+1

thats what i used. it makes for a very noticeable drop in under hood temps but wrapping it around a log manifold can be a pita.

High heat with ceramic! Up to 1200 intermittently...maybe worth a shot?
I tried that stuff on my old 4-1 header it looks like crap i even followed the oven bake cure process then put it on the car and cycled it rust all over it I am going to try the vht when I go to do it again. Just got to get access to a sand blaster to clean it again. I used it on the exhaust on my other car turned out nice if i wasn't using a ssac mani that needs repair every once in awhile i would lay some on it as well

ya thats what i was useing on my ss-autocrap but was ust wanting to clean up the eng bay a bit more.... i think im gonna do black for the color...the shiny shit dont impress me.....maybe for the compressor housing but i dont know if i want to take it apart again...i might just get it a blanket........I think im going to wrap my charge piping tho to hopefully drop my iat a bit..along with a cryo2 intercooler sprayer:)
