I wouldn't do any sort of paint baking in an oven that will be used for cooking food. That's just me though.

Open the windows and vacate the house for a little while. If not, I doubt I can make it to your funeral. I hear it's not good for you.

Ok, first you have to take off the black paint they ship them with(just wanted to make sure you knew this). I was thinking about this, and I also don't have an oven to 'bake' them in. I was thinking that you could hit them with a heat gun for awhile. That might help.... what do you guys think?

Whenever I use my gas oven or toaster-oven for things other than food I always heat them as hot as I can get them for a while after I'm finished. This makes sure there are no chemicals sticking around on the walls inside that can condense on the food I put in later. I've never had a problem doing this.

I will be getting a set of hedman hedders, and i know they will rust out pretty quick around here (rain and snow), so I was wondering if anyone had tried that HT Silicone Coating from DEI (I saw it in the summit catalog). would it have to be baked on too?

If you are going to waste your time (and money) baking rattle can crap in the oven only to watch it fail on your car shortly after, might I recommend spending $20 on a bottle of Cermakrome, or any other of the Techline ( www.techlincoatings.com ) protective "paints". Cermakrome is basically the same stuff JetHot uses w/o the cost part involved though. Cermakrome is slighly more labor intensive than just using a rattle-can though. Techlines other coatings do not require baking.

The black paint headers come paint with must be removed before you put any type of high temp paint on if you expect at least mediocre results from high-temp rattle can stuff. The black paint is just cheap (basically Wal-Mart $o.98 paint) semiglass black painted on to preserve the headers from rusting as they sit in the warehouse.

I'm not familiar with DEI HT silicone coating, but unless it says specifically that it can take the extreme exhaust temps, don't bother with it. Silicones are only good to about half of the exhaust line's temps, about 300 C (572 F). They start to decompose and release toxic fumes beyond that temp. I've never heard of any silicone product that could take much higher temps.

i just coated my headers with POR-20 from Eastwood and baked them in my oven. Like said above, just make sure you put the oven on self clean for a couple hours after your done, it gets anything that might be left in there out....

I baked a set of stock manifolds, an intake and 2 sets of headers in my oven... I'm not dead yet...

I use a rattle can ceramic high heat paint (1200*)

I installed the manifolds onto my friends S10 V8 and iafter 3months, still look great.

I suggest you sandblast your headers before painting them.. I couldn't do a decent job with my first set of headers and the paint did not last in the corners where I couldn't reach by hand.

btw, if you have your intake off for whatever reason, paint that thing up!! sandblast it and paint it and it will look like those $500 polished intakes

Surprisingly also, none of the pieces I've baked in the oven produced any smoke and hardly any fumes. I'm highly sensitive to fumes, smoke and dust and I wasn't bother at all by them, unless I stood right beside the oven.
