Had a local company do my manifold and dp on my old Eclipse, looked fantastic at first. About 1 month after did a couple runs at Maple Grove. Opened the hood to show someone the nox plumbing and closed the hood. Heard tiny little tinkly noises, opened the hood again, and sheets of the coating had wafted to the ground like $200.00 snowflakes.

After I cooled off and figured paying someone else to fix it was preferable to doing 30 to life, sent the pieces off to Jet-Hot. Shoulda done that in the beginning, but live and learn.... honestly can't say how much if at all it cooled off the bay but it kept it looking good and taint-free so that was worth it period!
