MAC headers coming soon

I just called MAC and spoke to Manny for more info This is the deal with their headers.

-Product pictures will be up by Friday
-Product to market within a month
-MSRP:
LTs = $469 ceramic/$349 chrome
STs - $379 ceramic/$319 chrome

The 3/4 chrome coated BBKs are going back, hopefully MAC does a much better job? I will likely go ceramic coated with them, I am wrapping them anyway so I do not care what they look like but want them to last and not rust out eventually.

If you're getting ceramic coated then why wrap them?

Lots of times the wrap just traps water and causes them to rust out.

Because the wrap insulates much better than ceramic coating so I am told? I am in S FL and do not need any additional heat in my engine bay! Ceramic because it will insulate even that much more and also protect against rust.

Does that water trapping also account for wrap methods using heavy amounts of silicon paint to further insulate?

Well, it's moot if you're going turbo later but the wrap will accelerate rust on even ceramic coated headers. I'd imagine moreso in the humidity down there. The ceramic coating has always had what starts as tiny little specs of rust after being on a while. They might last long enough for you though. Just a heads up to those thinking they're safe wrapping coated headers long term.

Don't hold your breath on these. Mac promised them a month out more than six months ago. They have had pages for them since the end of last year using the 4.0 v6 specs. Call me skeptical.

Any word on whether they'll be releasing a catted or O/R X pipe to go with them?

Land if you plan to ceramic coat them yourself then buy them bare (see if they cut you a discount) as they will need to be stripped prior to being coated. Or if you meant you were going to purchase the ceramic coated ones done by MAC then I also agree do not wrap them as it is not needed.

If you are referring to my comments, no pictures. But the headers are on and they fit great. I looked them over carefully before install and although not perfect, they are as good a it gets for the price IMO.
