header choice?

Have a 69 mustang with 390 fe engine. What is best choice/make for full length headers? Ceramic or paint? Have Hooker super comp and not very happy with fitment. They seem to leak no matter what I do. Thanks

Re: header choice?

No matter what brrand you end up with I'd go with the ceramic coating for sure. My headers are 10 years old and have had two paint job already. Of course if they rub anyplace I'm not sure how the coating will stand up to that.

I've never had flange leaks on my Super Comps but only where they've rubbed small holes (in two places). After getting them repaired and small plates welded over the areas I've had good luck - so far.
