Why dont people make custom headers in stainless steel and not have to coat them. Im thinkin about doing that this winter on my world block hemi, in my challenger.





Stainless seems to crack easier. My coating guys see a lot of cracked headers and race mufflers made of stainless.

Well My header guy has yet to see a cracked SS header he built. That includes headers that came back for repair that were severely bent from the round-d-round racers banging into each other. I went with stainless. He uses steel flanges with SS tubes.

Thats exactly what my header guy said when I asked him about it. We were talking about coatings and I said i like the "natural" steel look. And SS is about the only way to really get that look...but..like you say..mucho denaro!! I would do it if i could, tho.
