Yes, you can get it coated before your header install. First the Coater will Bake it. Then Media Blast it. Then Coat it and then polish if u get Metallic Ceramic Coating.

Nice results.

Is your car a manual or automatic?

Other than sound, do you notice any new found torque while just taking off from a stop and accelerating casually down the road?
