    You have to have some serious hi-temp stuff to do headers. If it doesn't say anything about it, I would assume that you couldn't use it.

    I spoke to the POR guys in jersey- They said that the POR 15 stuff will not take temps higher than 500 degrees-

    To do hedders, your supposed to sand blast the old hedders, and paint it with the POR hedder paint.

    thanks for the info.. thanks to these new york winters i have plenty of other uses for this stuff just thought that may clean up the engine bay a lil and maybe keep those headers around a lil longer. ive never heard of the POR header paint but if i was gonna pull the headers to sandblast em i would just replace em. again thanks alot! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
