exhaust manifold temp?

Can anyone tell me if the temperature for the exhaust manifold is greater than 700 degrees? I am thinking of painting the manifold and exhaust with POR15 since I have it apart. I read somewhere the POR15 paint is safe up to 700 degrees. I know they make other paints that is safe to 1400 but I have some leftover paint lying around. Just trying to save the exhaust from the inevitable. Will have to replace it in a few years. Thanks

You heard the man ! Your EGT will easily get to 1000 degrees on steep and long inclines so go with the hot stuff. You can use the rattle can stuff witch is pretty cheap and works well if you remember the magic word ... PREPARATION !

Did mine that way and worked really nice and still looks good.

Thanks guys. That's what I was thinking but when I read their "engine painting" info, they use regular POR 15 then topcoat with their engine paint. Figured if they recommend POR15 on the engine it must be good enough. I'll just buy their manifold paint and be done with it. What's another $20-30 right? Wouldn't be a Land Rover if it didn't continually suck money out of my wallet. Thanks again for the info and recommendation.

I should add that after painting 2 or 3 manifolds with the POR stuff I would just as soon never do it again. manifolds are fine in their natural state
