We are in east Tennessee, price depends on size and shape. We do headers for a lot of powder coaters, but not these guys.

I tried the plasti-kote header paint and it says for 1500 degrees and it worked good plus it said you can cure it by starting the engine unlike vht which they say to cure in an oven at diffrent temps. I might give tech line coatings a try techlinecoatings.com they say it cures by air drying and good for up to 2000 degrees. Look it on youtube as well.


It was specifically headers paint and read the directions 3 or 4 times and never said anything about baking them.

My next set will be ceramic coated there is a shop 30 minutes from here that will do them for $280, lesson learned about the paint for me.

The VHT Paint i use is Very High Temperature Flame Proof Header Paint Silica-Ceramic Coating 1,300-2,000 degree.On the back of the can it says to either Bake it on and also has on car Baking suggestions.On car run it for 10 minutes let cool for 20 minutes,run for 20 minutes let cool for 20 minutes,run for 30 minutes then let cool.I got the paint i use from Summit Racing for $9.25 a can IMO i think it holds up pretty well as my car sits outside under a cover all year long.

Later Mark
