Cast Headers

I have a new set of Langston cast iron headers I'm going to install on my 292. I'm thinking I would like to have them powder coated. If I do this will this last or will it slowly burn off? I'm sure a few have probably done this so I'n just looking for any advise. Also does anyone have a ball park figure on approximately how much this should cost to have done? Never had anything powder coated so this is a new experience.

Re: Cast Headers

If you're going to have them coated, get them ceramic coated.

Does the powder coating burn off, but the ceramic coating not?

Yes.
Regular powdercoat will burn off exhaust manifolds or headers. A good ceramic powder coat (Cerakote, Jet Hot) will not.
I had a local company Cerakote my headers, downpipe and turbo for my street/strip car. Has held tough and keeps the underhood temps down.
