I had my 6.0 boost tubes coated by Jet-Hot coatings in a sterling finish.

This coating helps to reduce temps, where as chrome will retain heat.

Here are some pics below.

Never hurts to try though...

Besides, the chromer has to clean them and polish before hand anyway... so...

If you take your time, and go step by step... they should come out fantastic...

My whole bike is polished... except for a chrome timing cover a buddy made for me, with some custom laser etching...

Guess which looks better? With a much deeper luster...

Worth a shot...

My 2cents..

Good luck either way

EDIT... Ceramic Coat WILL yield a MUCH better return than chrome... PLUS, it wont flake, or cause other problems...

I think some powder coated ones would look good, if you could get them colored and match under the hood with that same color
