Re: Header paint/coatings
A magazine did this test (Dont remember what one) and black dissipated heat faster. It wasnt a huge amount though. I used VHT 2000* spray paint. Sand Blasted, cleaned, heated then painted and it has lasted several months without discoloring or any other kind of flaw. I love it and will use it again if needed.
462 forged internals, Dart iron 308cc, Crower cam (Small 545 lift.) solid flat tappet, Weiand team G, Hooker comps, 565 hp/tq. All in a tight bundle of American steel called a 69 C-10.
