i ran my car today at idle for about 15 minutes, i used a pyrometer (a laser thermometer thing you point and it tells the temp. ) and i never got a reading on my header that was more than 475...if you use the 1000 degrees stuff with primer, and the paint, then you should be fine as long as you prep the surface correctly...i might be painting my header soon also, seeing as its getting old looking...
