I don't think if would stay. You would basically bake/burn it off. You can though p.c. the exhaust cans. That's what my Barkers have.

Yeah you can. I did some headers on a LS1 Camaro of mine and they are still holding strong.

I will have to see what they used. I took them to a company and they did them for me and said it would hold up under extreme temps. I had them glowing red once and they still look good.

Rattle can is not going to hold up.. I would ceramic coat them as it helps exhaust flow. But that might more coin than your willing to spend as you want to rattle can them..

They run a Ad on Ebay for ceramic coating, It costs around $80 to $90 to do it. The stores name onEbay is Honda6029, You ship them your exhaust they ceramic coat it and send it back.

My little fluke IR thermometer showed between 800-850 Fahrenheit. That was after the engine was warmed up and fan kicked on. I'll try to get them red tonight and test it again but I'm not sure what the max temp reading is of the fluke.
