    OHW is spec'd to 400° I believe. Most exhausts doesn't get hot enough at the tip to damage the paint, but the prints vary drastically. Best advice is try it and see.

    @WormHydrodipper ive done them with water based paint dipped in gold carbon fiber with regular clear coat. i saw them the other day and they looked fine were going to strip and redo in another pattern but you should be fine.

    Most paints are good up to 400 degrees. The tips are bolt on and are not in constant cull contact with the rest of the pipe. Plus they get plenty of air flow being exposed and not way under the vehicle.

    Print does not matter...it's the paint and the degrees that the tip gets that matters...with a good map? You should get nowhere near 400 degrees...

    If the exhaust tip gets that hot you will have more to worry about then the paint coming off

    Even catalytic converters when working right only run about 300-350 degrees. The tips will get nowhere that hot.
