I asked my resident race car guy about wrap vs. paint and he said the paint would be a massive downgrade in heat retention from the wrap, but I know ceremic coating is a different story.

Btw with the 2.8 you might want slightly smaller injectors and I'm not sure you can get used chips like the 95s, don't you guys have to flash software on?

I overheated it two years ago and it developed an external HG leak, I'm just now getting around to fixing it.

What's weird is while I've been fixing it 3 of my friends have blown HGs. :eek::eeps:
