don't know how this would look.

i have been thinking about my headers and how they would look if i sprayed, or powder coated them flatt black. half of me says it would look sick and original, and the the other half says " DONT SPRAY YOUR DC HEADDERS!" up for descussion. i will be doing it probably laybor day weekend if i do. i wanna know what you guys think

Re: don't know how this would look.

first: it's a header since there is only one.
second: it's a dc header, not expensive, not rare.

make sure you use a high temp paint, and if that doesn't hold up, have it powder coated.


it's not original, black headers have been around for years. if it's what you like, do it.

Re: don't know how this would look.

Hell do it, it shouldnt be that expensive and it will probably look better than not painted. I have the oem header and i painted the heat shield and i think it looks alot better. So go for it show us how it comes out though!

Re: don't know how this would look.

Best of luck! With the red black thing you seem to have on the outside doing a black header would look sweet. Maybe red plug wires in ur future?

Re: don't know how this would look.
