ceramic coat header on a jeep tj

My 2.5 jeep tj needed a new header so I ordered the pacesetter armor coat header what do you guys think of it? Anything special I should do during installation? I was thinking of tapingit to protect the finish and cleaning it with carb cleaner before the first start.

I thought the ceramic coating was there to protect the pipe. Don't see a need to protect the coating. After all. Itís not a show rig, especially with a 4 banger.

Ceramic is very hard and is not going to scratch.

(IMHO a waste on a Jeep. Ceramic coating benefits are that they will stay nice and silver and not corrode. Nice to have if you have an engine you show off. Ceramic coating is a good insulator and will help keep underhood temps down. Not that important here)

I had my entire exhaust ceramic coated which not only helps keep underhood temps down but it also helped with keeping the floorboards a little cooler. Also, my 16 year old Jeep easily passes Cali emissions and that's with a fat cam. Keeping the cats hot is key to low NOX and the ceramic coating helps by keeping the heat inside the exhaust. Does everyone need it, probably not but if one can afford it, then it does have its benefits.
