Ceramic coat turbo headers inside and out?

I have heard that if you coat the inside of turbo headers, that the coating can come off and damage the turbo.

Lo-Ko (a local coating company), came by today to pick up my turbo system for coating. They said that they have coated the inside and outside of many turbo headers and have never had a problem with it coming off.

My headers are mild steel BTW.

Anyone with opinions or experiences with this? (Whether or not to coat the Inside of the turbo system)

Thanks!

the outside of the headers is the only part of mine coated...i've always heard that it will flake and send pieces into the turbo tearing up the impellar, etc but don't know of anyone that it has actually happened to. i just took their word for it b/c i didn't want to find out if it actually would happen or not.

I just had Lo-Ko do my turbo parts. I had them do the outsides only. Better safe than sorry.

Damn, that's a Nice looking engine compartment.

I told Lo-Kote to do everything in black. Now I'm having second thoughts.
