Default Header Help

Recently installed a pair of pace setter shorty headers from SummitRacing, and painted them with some high temp exhaust paint (pepboys). After running the truck for a few days all the paint has burned off and the metal is discolored. What gives, is my truck running to rich?

Most header paint requires the surface to be heated or baked on for the paint to properly adhere check the paint can. All newer trucks are computer controlled so they are actually set to run lean (EPA BS) so in relation truck is not the problem but more than likely the paint or how it was done. Hope that this helps.
