a stock engine with stock manifolds can very easily push 400 deg i've measured many over 500 so you could definatly exceed 600 deg around the headers especially if you are running a little lean or have been running the engine at high rpm's. i ran accel 8.8 with my headers and have never had a problem although i don't know their temp rating off hand. my headers have been glowing occasionaly after extended periods of abusive fun.
