hi temp powder costing

Not sure if this is the right place for this question. I just bought a powerflow (grand rock) turbo back exhaust for my 6.0. The system is alumnized pipe, so can I have it powder coated with some high temp powder? Not sure if the poweder will hold up to the high temp of the exhaust? Another option would be to paint with a high temp paint. Would that be better to use? The reason for coating the exhaust is to help prevent it from rusting as I live in the north east part of ny were they use salt on the roads.

ive often wondered about getting the outside of my compressor housing and my CAC pipes powder coated along with a few other parts for a nice clean looking eng. compartment. but I feel like the bang for the buck is just going to be the paint for your exhaust rather than the powder coat.... big $$$$$$$

I have a buddy that can do the powder coating for $130. So the price is not the problem. I was wonder if it will hold up?

I think for the price of having it powder coated spending the extra on stainless steel would have been a better move. Unfortunately everywhere you put a clamp on the system or where you weld it is going to be where it rusts through.

I can get the full exhaust powder coated for 100.00. So it is still cheaper then a stainless one. But I decided to go with the vht flame proof primer and paint as it is good up to 2000 degrees.

I've used that VHT paint. My heads and rocker boxes are painted in their engine enamel and it's holding up great. However though, I've used their flame proof paint on cast iron turbine housings and exhaust manifolds and even with baking it (which they recommend doing) it still flakes off. Maybe since your exhaust is not cast it'll last longer but I don't know.
