    Default header heat

    got a cover over my motor with 5inch clearance. looking to put headers on. wondering if the heat is going to be a problem. are there any headers cooler than others?

    Water jacketed headers are fine. Mine enjoy hiding under my hood, and no need for coatings except to make them whatever color you want.
    Injecteds there would be a great way to set it on fire in the no-wake zone tho.

    Yep, those are jacketed.

    Budget demanded I go Lightnings ($1900), and used ($1200).

    Will upgrade later, very happy now.
