So I got my engine back from the machine shop today and it looks great. I still have a lot of assembly work to do. I am going to stick with the stock exhaust manifolds instead of headers. I have sandblasted the manifolds and they are ready for finishing. Should I paint them with high temp exhaust paint or put a header wrap on them or finish them with something else? Ceramic or "Jet Hot" coating is too expensive for me right now. Anyone have any suggestions? My Cougar is a 69 XR7 convertible with a 351W (M-code) and a toploader 4 speed. Thanks.
