What kind of header coating?

This time around if I get new headers, I want to get good ones. No Dynomax junk.

I have been looking at the Headman Elite series headers. They seem like they are decent quality. The price is in the $200 range for my 1 3/4" full length '73 Camaro headers.

I was also looking at the Headman HTC headers. The ones with the high temp coating. Those are in the $500 range.

I want them coated because I am tired of looking at rusty headers. We had the Elites on my wifes Challenger for almost ten years and they still looked good. I have regular Headmans on my Ranchero. They are a little rusty, but they fit extremely well.

Are there any other brands with coated headers that are worth considering? I would rather not spend a fortune on headers.

Are the HTCs worth the $$$?

Any opinions?

Llucianno,

I bought my Hooker headers direct from Jet Hot Coat. Buying from them, they say that they guarantee that the header is fully coated inside and out. At the time that I bought mine, they said that most manufacturers only coat to where it will reach inside the tubes and collectors. That was 2-3 years ago, so maybe others fully coat inside and out now. I just like the idea of getting them from the company that is actually coating them. I can't remember exactly what they cost, but the $500 price range was about right. Take a look at their Website , you will see their marketing of their product, and comparisons.
