Default High Temperature Exhaust Paint

I am having my engine replaced. The cast iron exhaust manifold will be cleaned, painted and re-installed. What high-temperature paint lasts the longest?

I've used the Eastwood sold paints for this application with success.

Has anyone had any experience with ceramic exhaust paints and their application?

On the Tech Line Coatings website, I found a "Turbo X" line of ceramic exhaust coatings (Tech Line Coatings Webstore).

According to the instructions, the "Turbo X" coating can be applied to the exhaust component, air-dried and cured by idling or gently driving the car for 30 minutes. There is cheaper "Black Satin Header" coating but it requires 60 minutes of running the engine.

I suspect that a kiln or oven can better cure or more evenly cure the coating than running the engine can. The instructions do warn that the engine "valves, timing and jetting" must be properly tuned before curing the coating on the car.

A hazardous materials fee applies to these products if shipped by air. Perhaps I should let a professional apply the coating in a kiln.

After the dealership cleaned and painted my exhaust manifold, it was discovered that the manifold was cracked. I did what I should have done in the first place. I purchased a stainless steel exhaust header.
