Does anyone on the Forum do powder coating? I would like to have two manifolds and a Y-pipe done, and I would pay a reasonable (not "cheap") amount.
Thanks!

I thought there was a type of ceramic powder coat, but I am not very familiar with the process.
I had one set of manifolds coated by JetHot, but they are starting to peel. That's not very cool (no pun) for a lifetime guarantee. It's only been a relatively short 6 years in my manifolds' lifetime.
Incidentally, I've contacted JetHot several times about the failure under warantee, but I haven't heard back from them yet. Curioser and curioser.

While you can powder coat exhaust parts, it is not advised. Most powder coated parts are heat set at about 350*F. Exhaust temps at the manifold will cause it to flake and come off after a short time.

A high silicone content powder can withstand much higher temps (close to 1000*F) and would work, but I am not sure for how long on a manifold.

There is a hi temp powder that can be used. I had a set of headers done years ago. Never discolored or came apart.
