Well, I went riding today, but it was realy cold here in MI. Nonetheless I got about 6 hours of riding in.
Rode till dark I started my bike up and let it idle for about 5 minutes and looked at the header. Holy smokes!!! Red Hot!!! I've heard people talk about the 426 header glowing like mad and sure enough it does.
That's the most wicked looking thing I've ever seen. Awesome!

The stock header pipe is quite thin-walled. It's perfectly normal to see it glow red-hot. Light your camp fire from it and grin like a mule eatin' briars... :)

The pipe glows so that you'll always have enough light to read your owner's manual in the dark. :)
