I ordered the Xforce UEL Headers and will be coating them with some heat paint. I managed to pick some paint up yesterday and its rated at 1093.33333 Celsius or 2000 Fahrenheit.

From previous videos on YouTube people have complained about the brand of paint coming off after a short period of time. I don't think they were using a high enough rated paint, so $70 worth of paint and when I get my headers I will paint them with a primer and then a nice flat red to go with the colour of my car.

The guy at the shop said after some time the headers will turn black, but most people just re-coat the headers.

You don't really get a coating from a rattle can but the undertray should allow it to last for awhile.

Why coat them anyways? What is the purpose of it? You wont see the header anyways. And that paint will do nothing in terms of protection. Do a ceramic coating in black or silver and call it a day.

Thanks for confidence boost......I hope they don't crack, the sensor read 550-600 so hot stuff.

I will update on how they go.....the flat red I got reads ceramic coating on the label.

We all do crazy things to our cars.

That red is nowhere near the proper ceramic coating. IS just a paint that will flake in couple of months time. Ask me how I know


Good luck with them.
