Question JET HOT 2000 Coatings?

Fellow turbo junkies, what do you guys think about the JET HOT 2000 header coatings?

Is it worth spending the extra cash on this process to reduce engine bay temps?

I presume the actual spool-up improvement would be minimal, but it may be worthwhile just to have a cooler engine bay and reduce heat soak in our intercoolers?

I've heard from certain tuners that it may accelerate cracking in the joints around the header? Is this more prevalent in track cars, or street cars?

I've also been told NOT to coat the inside of the headers, as the coating could potentially flake off and ruin the turbo's turbine?

What do you guys think? Worth the effort or not?

I've got a set of GSF S.S headers (no heater boxes) which I'm intending to use with a Garrett GT35RBB turbo and free flowing Magnaflow single in/out muffler.
