I used to get pulled over all the time without a problem engine wise, it was always bald tyres or too low that got me in the shit :P

Do you guys just use Satin Black spray paint in the cans or is there a certain paint you use?

 

I use VHT Satin Black Wheel Paint. It's a polyurethane paint which is temperature and scratch resistant. It's not scratch proof, but it's as good as any 2k hardened paint ;) And cheap and easy (my two favourite things).

But why spend so much on ceramic coating something that does absolutely nothing for performance?

Should of got the manifold and turbine housing done instead

When driving hard for a longer period, it keeps lower temps in the engine-bay so I would say that would result in less power drop.

^ Yeah maybe if you had done the mani and turbo housings. The heat shield is going to do its part to a point, coated or not.
