Is the heatshield intact? I run an uncoated race header which produces an astronomical amount of heat (especially when compared to the factory manifold) and have had zero issues with paint on the underside or top of the hood.

Back in the day when I was running the shorty header on my car, it would get so hot that when it rain the rain would sizzle. Still looks the same after all these years, well besides the years of chips from rocks that is lol. Your hood will be fine.

Heat shield is intact. All stock under the hood.

You'll be good, especially with heat shields.

I knew this thread was old when I saw the avatar of Tyrone Biggums
