The NEW Hooker
Darkside black ceramic coated Headers
offer the nostalgic, aggressive look of black with a more refined texture and appearance than is possible from any painted finish. The satin sheen provided by this coating is truly striking and sure to please. In addition to providing a more menacing look, which makes a fresh styling statement, Hooker's new Darkside coating supplies all the corrosion resistance properties of our existing silver ceramic coating plus improved thermal resistance to ensure peak performance and durability. Hooker
Darksides provide a unique styling enhancement that is equally pleasing in either a nostalgic retro application or a modern hi–tech build. As this coating is not burnished (polished) after its application, the surface appearance is more consistent than that of a silver ceramic coated header. Be different and move over to the Darkside!
Super Competition the objective has always been to make the maximum horsepower and to put it at the optimum point in the power curve. It takes a lot of time and money to do the job right. We will sometimes spend up to 2 to 3 times more just to make the Super Competition header work only 5 to 10% better. That commitment to excellence has made Hooker Headers
the winningest header manufacturer in automotive drag racing history.

Breaking in an engine with ceramic coated Headers
WILL result in damage to the coating and will VOID all warranties. Ceramic coated Headers
require several heat cycles to fully cure before they will withstand extreme heat. Hooker
recommends using cast iron exhaust manifolds
or old Headers
to break in new engines to avoid coating damage. Please call Hooker
tech service at 270-781-9741 for additional information regarding ceramic coated exhaust products. The use of header wraps can cause the header tubes to crack or rust due to excessive heat and moisture build-up. Hooker
does not recommend the use of header wraps as this will void the warranty.
