Andrew,

Thanks again for the cigars, they were great. I have coated manifolds on my truck and I cant whether or not they cooled the engine bay but it cant hurt. In addition to having a cooler surface temp. the manifolds will last much longer and not rust, at least from the outside. The thing that made the biggest differance in passenger compartment heat was insulating the firewall, trans tunnel, floors and seat box and doors. I also insulated the roof. I used a cheap version of Dynomat that cost me $89 for a 99sq. ft. roll. It is a roofing material that is used in cold climates, I believe called Peel and Seel or Peel and Stick? I also helped a ton with deadening the road and engine noise. The final thing I did was place a aluminized fibreglass insulation blanket on the bulkhead in the engine compartment. All this has made a once noisy ride very bearable.

Hey Kevin, glad you enjoyed the cigars! I went ahead and ordered a set of the ceramic headers to try them out. I figured the same thing you stated that it can't hurt and at least they will look better than the stock ones. I am on a kick of trying to keep as much heat out of the cab and cut down on the radiant heat damage to components as possible. In addition to the ceramic headers, I'm thinking of using a product from Thermo Tec that wraps half way around the exhaust pipes and directs the heat away from the cab floor and other components.

I'm also thinking of installing a Flowmaster 50 Series muffler since you can get an aluminum heat shield that goes on top of it. If these measures don't work as well as I'd like I'll give the insulation a try. Thanks for your thoughts, appreciate it!

Brent,

I would like to get a set of these for a 97 D-90. Are you still offering these for 225.00?

Also, did you ever work up a price where you would buy the used ones that are serviceable? I want to swap mine out.

My D-90 only has 50,000 mile so they might be in fairly decent shape.

Thanks,

Ed

Sorry, not offering them at $225 anymore. The first run cost me $250 per set just to coat but I wanted to get some moved and into people's trucks. Selling them for $300 now to people who will sell me their cores back for $50. I am also now selling the gasket kit as well. Let me know if you want a set as I have several just completed and can ship out asap.

Pricing INCLUDING shipping
Manifolds: $317
Manifolds w/Basic Kit: $396.6
Manifolds w/Lock Kit: $420.6




thanks

Yes, I just completed another batch. I have been getting shafted on the cores because I wasn't offering enough $$$ for them, so raising price on package but giving more $$$ back on cores.

$365.00 shipped, $75 for cores

Sorry, didn't realize I had an unreplied posting. No, $365.00 shipped does not include the gaskets. Honestly, I would avoid the locking kit. Those french locks are a PITA. We have been using standard lock washers without any issues.

Follow-up Post:

Had an offline request to clarify current pricing.

Pricing INCLUDING shipping
Manifolds: $
365 ($75 paid for shipped cores)

Manifolds w/Basic Kit: $396.6
Exhaust studs, Stud nuts, Manifold gaskets, Flange gaskets, Bolts, Washers, Lock Washers
Manifolds w/Lock Kit: $420.6
Replaces lock washers in basic kit with french locks ("L" shaped locks that are a pain to get back off)

Thank you for all your orders. I have 5 sets in stock currently.
