How hot can a manifold get?


I heard 1200 deg F. Also heard 1500 deg F. Both cant be right. Web search was not very believeable, so I figured ask the members here if anybody ever really found this out. Oh, I meant to say engine exhaust manifold.

I guess between 1200 and 1400(?)

Thanks, people.

You didn't say diesel or gas. Gas will peak around 1200F. Diesel around 1500F. Anything hotter and the internals of the engine start coming apart.

Those numbers sound good to me, but in the world of drag or stock car racing I have seen really good headers glow orange for about six inches from the head of the motor. That is really hot.

Sory, trapper, yes, its gasolinre. Good to know peak is at 1200.

Glowing red hot?? Yikes- thats probably near to melting point (1900 deg F, or so). Eh?
One can make Japanese swords with a manifold, then.......
