I installed a set of HiPo manifolds and before I did I had them powder coated at a cost of $80.00.Needless to say after a short 3 months the coating is almost off and after getting a bit angry at the company,they told me that cast iron is difficult to get just right.Why didn't they tell me that in the first place. Anyhow does anyone know of any thing I can apply without pulling them off again? I use the car daily.

Eastwood sells a stainless paint that is supposed to be good but I used a product called cast blast which I got at Va Mustang but my local Disc Auto PArts sells it. You must start with clean manifolds, no rust. I put them in the oven one at a time. Your wife MAY raise an eyebrow 'cause it does have a SLIGHT smell! They have been on my 65 GT {HI-PO manifolds} for 10,000 miles and are starting to look tacky. I touch them up by spraying some of the spray into the cap and use a long artist brush.

I used POR-15. I think it was called Manifold grey. I put that stuff on without even cleaning it first. It has lasted over a year so far without any signs of it coming off.

Powder Coating exhaust manifold??? Is there such a product... I didn't think powder coating was tolerant of excessive heat...

I "ceramic coated" my Hi-Po exhaust manifolds and they looked like day one when I took them off 2 1/2 years later.
I wouldn't think powder coating would work on exhaust manifolds either Don but it sure looks great on my intake manifold !!!
