Cool Swain Tech Euro Header Coatings

Hey guys,

I just got my Euro headers coated by Swain Tech up in NY state. I attached a few pictures for your viewing pleasure. The coating came out great. It took about 3 weeks to get them back. I had them coating with White Lightning coating because I wanted to reduce under-hood temps as best as I could considering I will be doing the CSL Airbox on the car. I will take before and after under-hood temp readings when I have a chance to see what the difference will be.

i kind of wish i coated my headers too.

if you don't mind me asking, is there any difference in terms of temperature reductions compared to Jet Hot Coatings?

I did not install these suckers yet, I am out of town with the car for a week, I'd like to install them next week. I want to dyno the car first stock. I'll add the headers, measure underhood temps and post results. After that, if and when the airbox is done, I'll dyno that too.

As for colors, this is the white lightning product, it's just white. Of course the color shouldnt matter too much because you can't see these installed. These cost me $471 shipped back to me.

I have a buddy in town who is going to do the install, he's got a shop and works on BMW's. Pm me if you want to come down and watch or something.

Might have to come and install mine while I'm at it lol. 470 is a good portion of what i payed for the headers themselves! But i suppose it is worth the wait. I'll have to think this one over.

Found out why they were so expensive. The shipping was $221 for 2nd day air, which they shouldn't have done by there was a communication error. The coating itself was only $250. Either way, they came out nice and I am curious to see how well they'll do their job.
