Default Look what I grabbed off my old motor at the shop..



I'm planning on sandblasting them at school during shop tomorrow

then some high-temp paint sooner or later, or powder coating, then most likely going to be sold on here, or go on my car

But why not wait, save up money and actually put them to use? Unless your going to try a DIY port job.

Forget high temp paint. It'* worthless. Look up my old topic of 1500 degree beautiful red paint on my freshly ported manifolds.

Nothing remains of the paint. It was gone in two weeks.

My paint burned away, leaving the ceramic component intact (thin layer). I've since applied a DIY ceramic coating that I'm testing.

My stepdad says anything I do with the crossover will be worthless because it is usually replaced when the exhaust system is new. Is this true?
