i would think that heat wrap would keep the temp levels down better under the hood... why not get em ceramic coated then wrap em

wrapping it by itself will actually make it rust out faster....i just painted mine with 15008 heat paint

Jet Hot works great. We do it to alot of the turbo kits we fab and some of the exhaust systems as well. Holds up great and looks fantastic.

Be careful getting things coated on the inside. If it's not a good job you run the risk of the coating flaking off and finding it's way into the motor.

Just an FYI.

You couldn't get Jet Hot to flake off with an atomic bomb.

That's not true. I've seen that stuff flake off on turbo cars before.

It comes down to prep. If they don't do a good job cleaning it up before they coat it, it'll flake off.

Either way, coating it on the inside isn't worth the risk, IMHO. In this hobby there are too many guys who'll take your money and then take a short cut or two.

I wouldn't risk the engine over it.

I promise you, if you saw it flake off, it was not Jet Hot. It might have been "Jet Not" or ceramic coating, or BBQ paint, but it was most certainly not Jet Hot.

We did a kit with an 88mm Y2K T6 framed turbo pushing like a million pounds of boost, and it has yet to flake off of it.

haven't run it yet, but the headers and downpipes are now almost a year old and still look like i just painted them. i'm probably going to put one more coat on the down pipes as i was running out of paint when i did them. i used VHT 1500* black paint...says it'll hold up with 1500* and i've seen people actually ise this on the turbine housing itself and it hasn't come off...

I have Jet-Hot coating on my HP turbo kit and it flaked off like crazy. I sent the pipes back for recoating and guess what, they are flaking again and the pipes/turbine housings are beginning to rust.

Luck of the draw I guess.....

Swain coating is suposed to be the best out there and much much better than Jet-Hot.

All the stuff i've seen heat wrapped has looked liked absolute **** once the wrap comes back off. It holds in moisture and will rot out what its covering.

I'm tellin' ya man, it was Jet Hot. I'm not saying I blame the coating, because we've all seen it stick. I'm saying if they dont prep the material properly that stuff is coming off.

Either way, it's enough for me to not risk it on the inside.

It looks like I'm not alone.
