I have experienced this for the first time as of last night! Just fired my rebuilt motor, after a previous cam disaster, and lo and behold-the headers are glowing bright red! These are Flowtech shorties. The pipe that bolts to the collector was even glowing red as well. Kind of interesting. Did not seem to cause a problem so I just continued to break in the cam. Will check timing later and tune the Holley to see if the condition goes away or persists. Weird watching all of that paint turn red and just fall right off the pipes in a puff of smoke..
