Re: Header paint??
As you've probley already found out us folks with early 258s are quite limited when it comes to headers. I havn't come across any stainless ones yet.probley not enough demand.armour coated or what ever the particular manafacturer cals their high temp coating is the best we can get that I know of.And don't let anyone talk you into wrapping your headers, in damp climates everytime the engine heats up and cools down, the pipes are in their own personal little sauna bath do to condensation. if its a dry area and you have to run a cat, wrap works great for keeping exhaust gas temp hot enough to fire the cat .
