Can I chrome out my existing exhaust and intake manifolds without any problems from the heat or anything else? I haven't found any aftermarket upgrades for my '62 Caddy 390 engine so I'll have to work with what I've got. Thx for any info :cool:

i dont think the intake will turn blue cause it dont get that hot like the headers :cool:
there is an exhaust crossover that runs underneath the carb that may turn blue from the heat. You can get intake gaskets that block this port off if you can live with your car taking a little longer to warm up.

Dont chrome them, instead get them cermic coated, choosing the polished option (a little more $$$) gets you a beautifull set that wont rust or change colors. Some companies even garuntee that.

Heres a pic of some ceramic coated headers.
