    I want to powdercoat my header. How does that affect the overall temp while operating? does it conduct or extract heat? does color have anything to do with it?

    Krylon? lmao. I don't think even the high temp brake enamel will hold up to the heat off the header for very long.

    You can ceramic coat it, but you have limited color options, and it can be kinda pricey, and hard to find someone who can do it. I say get a nicly finished stainless steel header if you are worried about how it looks.
