I've been told that if you ceramic coat the inside of the pipes the outside won't change color. Anyone have experience?

Been There/Done That

I tried to have just the inside of the new OEM headers ceramic coated for my 99 TBS. Jet Hot Coatings, which I understand is one of the best, stopped doing the procedure because of the poor results. They state chrome eventually blued anyway. I talked to a few other coaters and of course a couple were anxious for the cash but would not guarantee the results. I ended up using some high temperature header paint on the inside. The pipes have blued at the top some, but I do think it helped. Do a search, I think the thread is in the Hinckley triples forum......

I used Kreem Blue Shield on my 2005 Bonneville pipes... this, in conjunction with airbox removal and rejetting keeps them nothing worse than a bit yellow - which comes off easily with some chrome cleaner.
