    I think you would need a high heat coating on a header like this. try contacting some of our powdercoating vendors and they may be able to help.
    Or if you're cheap, just order heat wrap.

      Header wrap would be my suggestion for keeping it cheap as well.  You can always try using a polish as well, but will most likely fade away after a few hours.  If you're feeling like a baller, powdercoating would be my 2nd suggestion.      Keep in mind, due to the work involved for a manifold/downpipe you're probably looking at a few hundred$ to get it done properly, if not more.

          powder coating will not work due to temp, as even the high temp powders can't withstand that. You can wrap it or spray with VHT for a cheap fix. If you want to clean it up, there are plenty of guides online on polishing SS exhausts. Same principles apply.

          For everything else, check the sticky at the top of this section regarding vendors for blasting/powder. You can expect a crossmember on a subaru to be ~$100 to powder and blast depending on where you go.
