Alright guys, i want to replace my greddy IC pipes with costume aluminum pipes ( with bov fixed to new pipes). So my QUESTION is would it be worth ceramic coating the pipes. Would there be a difference than non coated pipes, as far as the air temp., inside the pipes??

so you want to dress up your "costume" pipes with ceramic coat......

if they are Aluminium.. theres not really a point.
If they are steel, you need to coat inside and out to prevent rust.

Most references I've read say not to coat or wrap the pipes. The reason being that pipes get quite hot from the intake charge and need to shed that heat. If you want something fancy, polish the pipes instead and be sure to mount one or two fans in your engine lid to keep engine bay temps down.

Well, if you have a good intercooler, your charge temps in the pip should be cooler then your underhood temps...

I wouldn't (and didn't on my own car) wrap the hot side for that reason though.
