Update on the LS headers. (I'm still using them because I don't have a better option yet) The "ceramic" coating hasn't held up well at all. Rust was showing through in multiple places. Probably wasn't cured correctly, or isn't real ceramic coating. I sanded them down and painted them with VHT header paint to keep them from rusting out. I had them out because I'm swapping from a 6.0 to a 6.2, and FYI for anyone with a Gen IV block, the headers interfere with the passenger side knock sensor. I don't have any option but to try to relocate the sensor elsewhere on the block.

Power by Ace aka Automotive Component Engineering is a small shop, maybe somebody's hobby. They do not accept credit cards or have a phone number and now they do not answer my emails. I used their Vega motor engine mounts with my 327 424 HP and they twisted so I welded the open ends and boxed them to strengthen them then decided I better order another set and sent another check but PowerbyACE has gone silent. I think he was offended that I said they failed but truth be told they are a poor design with just a folded corner. If anybody knows of an alternative that keeps engine in same position please post, thanks, OEM NOT
