So just as my luck would have it, first run out with freshly coated headers at elsinore yesterday, the bitchin elsinore trash bag they give you with your lake pass caught some wind and decided to lay its self perfect on the top of my header. Immediately was able to wipe some of it off but a lot of it was burnt on already. Just tried Scotch brite in a little spot which was a mistake. Anyone have any bitchin ways to clean this up? Was considering oven cleaner ornsomethin like that. Thanks in advance!

  Run them without water and burn off all you can.  When you have completed that use mothers and polish them back up.

My headers have that self-cleaning feature also.  Works great.

Cheers,

Haha well that's easy. I figured it'd burn off eventually. Never thought to try polish on the ceramic. Thanks for the tips 👌

. If they are coated with cromex mothers makes them look like new.

One thing about ceramic coating it's pretty forgiving.
