If you're willing to spend a little more, see if littlebo is still making them. I got mine from him for $550 shipped with a test pipe w/flex section included. For. Little more he can also send you a HFC. He does quality work and it's a bolt-in solution to a stock or most aftermarket exhausts.

Edit: Disregard. Didn't see you had a 2nd Gen.

I would highly recommend skipping any coating or wraps - metal fatigues - coatings and especially wrap which traps moisture as well greatly accelerate that. The one exception to that is internal coatings, they reduce heat being absorbed into the metal and allow what does get absorbed to radiate away.

If you look into gp and f1 level exhaust manifolds you will often see a white coating like zircotech right up to the collector and sometimes further on for this reason.

Oh I see so then it comes down to which one I would prefer?

been having a tough time finding decent aftermarket for my 2nd gen or maybe not looking in the right places

Littlebo remote reflash, no need to replace your ECU or send it out to get it reflashed. You can find him on FB serge.bo81

I was thinking that! If I decide to do other mods mufflers CAI etc later would I have to get it reflashed? does it matter?

The reflash is for CAI and headers but works great with a stock car also.
