Pics of AR design dp's ceramic coated

My AR design downpipes arrived today. Snagged them from alan at **********s bc they had them on hand and sent them right out to jet hot courtesy of VAC in philadelphia to be ceramic coated. Heres two shots of the clean job done by jet hot. 2000 degree, in and out.

Very nice, I have used a company out of New York called Swaintech for their ceramic coating. I've heard their a bit better, but I think it's kinda a Pepsi/Coke, or Advil/Tylonol, orrrrr a JB4/Proceed comparison.

Here is a pic if interested. The prices weren't bad at all considering and unfortunately I should have sent my AR DP's with these to get coated, but didn't .

Reduce heat and protect against corrosion.

i got them to blow the heat out the exhaust and not spill it into the engine bay. i felt it was a good investment for a car like this that runs so hot.. basically doesnt let the heat escape into the bay pretty much. i payed $250. i went through VAC though. i was under the impression you cant deal direct with jet hot, but have to go through an authorized jet hot dealer like VAC. in fact if you try calling jet hot you WONT get an answer. busy signal all hours of all days lol. who knows.
