Default Coating the headers

Well I have a set of pacesetters coming soon and they are just the painted version however the paint will peal off the first time they are hot.

I have bad experience with the spray can versions of header coating as they flake off as well.

What should I be using?

FTW. I got some, but haven't pulled my EMs yet to coat them.

I have given up on the spray on coating. They just dont last. I am going to wrap mine with some fiberglass header wrap. Its advertised to reduce underhood temps by 50-70%

Yikes. You may want to lose the header wrap. There are mountains of testimonials about the wrap causing headers and manifolds to crack.

Use a coating (ceramic) instead.
