You have some good options; cast blast paint or Slip Plate. Both will give you good results. Using and applying slip plate to the manifolds is just a different way of coating your manifolds.
It's kind of like that "Paint Job on a Budget " thread . The one about using Rustoleum paint to paint a car with. That one took off like wild fire.

I've done the Eastwood stainless hi temp on older 70RR resto (2011) and Slip Plate on 69 Charger resto (2018). Eastwood is showing some aging - discoloration and such. Slip Plate remains perfect and IMO provides slightly darker, more realistic look.

Would the Slip Pate work on headers as well or is it intended more for the cast iron manifolds that are more porous? Anyone tried This?

It works well on cast iron because of the pores, etc. Might not stay on the headers because they have a smooth surface. I would give it a try. See how it works and let us know.

Researching all options... anyone have experience with powder coating exhaust manifolds?

Ive had them done for 2 customers and no complaints. The shop I use has a light and dark cast color in high heat powder coat I like the light one myself.

what temp is the powder coat good too?
We used to get ceramic coated here within driving distance but the closed up. We do have quite a few shows that do Powder Coat here but did not think it would be high temp enough

Standard HI TEMP POWDER coatings are good up to 600 degrees MAX short term, some of the newer SILICONE POWDER coating can sustain up to 1000 degree F MAX for short periods.....cast iron manifolds will see easily upwards of 800 degrees for prolonged periods....so as I mentioned in the other thread, powder coating exhaust manifolds is great for wall art or trailer queens, otherwise ceramic coating from the likes of Jet Hot or Rocket Coatings are the way to go, not that expensive either, and you can get the inside done as well, and it will last....probably longer than one's ownership of the vehicle
