Muzzy headers are running a bit hot. Although we have not had much trouble ourselves,Muzzy's have contacted us stating that they will be sending a new heat sheild for the front header pipe where it is close to the mag cover,as they have notice some excessive heat in that area. Good pro active stance on their part.

Today my header pipes are being ceramic coated by High Tech Mechanical Coatings here in Nova Scotia. He says he will do an extra step on top of the internal and externally coated ceramic chrome finish...he has another black coating that is for Turbo headers that goes on top of the regular ceramic that offers an additional 10% in heat resistance,so I told him to go ahead. High Tech claim that it has drastically reduced the "foot heat" in stock car racing applications he has been doing. I know the guy very well and trust his judgement.
I know this is a Canadian company,and many of you guys are in the US,but this extra step may be offered in other coating shops as well.

Just a thought. I think this process should drastically reduce the cabin heat for those that have mentioned it.

I also welded in the threaded bung for the Air /fuel ratio guage before the coating gets done.

I'll report on the heat issues after the coating.

Thanks for the information...hmm I wonder if the shields would be sufficient or if I should get the coating done before the pipes go it.

Muzzy will be sending sheilds that will be fine and will fix the "plastic mag cover getting hot" issue,I'm just trying this,as it will also get rid of heat all together(no matter what pipes,even stock) in the front portion around the engine and get the heat out the back where it belongs.I also put the metal mag cover plate from a v-force on there ...I think it cost like 12$ to replace the plastic one that comes on the teryx.

I am really considering getting the headpipes coated...at the very least, as you said it will eliminate some heat. This will probably we a welcomed addition once the 840 kit goes on.

I just ran the headers again this morning after the coating. I will not be needing any heat sheilds.

This 2 step process has me sold. Ceramic inside and out and this extra black stuff on top of that. There is no heat issue with my Teryx. It takes a day longer according to High tech Mechanical coatings,...as they have to profile the ceramic and put on the black stuff,then it still has to go into the oven all over again.

The company I was talking to about coating my headers does the insides and the outsides. I do not know anything about this secondary outter coat though. Is there a specific material or term for it?

You are probably looking at $150 to get the inside and outside coated.

Around 150 for ceramic and another 50 for the other stuff I beleive. I'm not really sure what Hi-Tech uses for that outer coating. There is a whole world out there of propeitary coatings and formulations.

I wish Muzzy would sell them with the two layer heat removal process already installed. Charge me for it as an option.

Doug- Muzzys is testing different coatings now. When we have decided on which type is best we will offer as an option.

Great Rob
You should be able to get better pricing than the average consumer on bulk sale with better quality contol.

Are you going to build a Teryx pro pipe for a BBK?

This Muzzy pipe ,I beleive,is based on the pro pipe already.

I can't say enough good about the quality ,adjustable sound level(with and with out the quiet cores) ,fit and performance. We are very happy with the Muzzy. A great product.

Rob,I beleive ,with the known heat issues,even with the stock pipe,..that if you offer a coated version,it should go over very well in the market.

My opinion so far.

I would have to concur with this, while I do not have the kit installed yet I absolutely must say the design, fit, and finish of the product is incredible!

In regards to offer coated pipes directly from Muzzys, I am loving the idea!

I got the same call from Muzzy's a couple of weeks ago about the heat shields... Any idea where they stand? What will be required to install them? When are the coming etc?

I was told to put some header wrap on the pipes before the shields got here, but without taking it all back apart its gonna be pretty tough to get the wrap on the pipes given the clearance issues...

Scott...

The shields will be able to be installed without the removal of any of the exhaust components and should only take about 15 minutes to do.

As far as when they are going to start shipping them, I am sorry I do not have that answer. I am sure a rep from Muzzys will be on here though with an answer for you.

I am ready to start ordering parts for my new Teryx and was going to order the Muzzys exhaust. I want to have it ready for Dune Fest in Oregon July 8th. Any chance one of the coated versions would be available by then? I would even take a version that was tested buy not your final product if it is an improvement over the original. I can even pick it up in Bend since I am in Portland. Help????

Can I just say, coated or not coated, the Muzzys is going to be the way to go.

If I remember correctly, Muzzys is going to be out there for Dune Fest :)

You WILL NOT be dissapointed with their product!

I am sure one of their reps that belong to this site, however, will answer your question in regards to the coating.

I am convinced that i am going with the Muzzys. I just got curious what they do with ones they have tested. Since we are both Oregon folks I can help promote them and I can maybe get a prototype version that is not the final product.
