...I must admit i did not clean my nitro 4 tec after several runs in parking lots, and black burned on gunk is stuck to the exhaust header, turning it from a nice blue, to an ugly beat up looking piece...any way to get rid of that? i've scrubbed my brains out and nothing came off, also what body size's fit on the 4 tec (like in mm) thanks

200mm, but you can fit 190mm's on also.
You could try warm water and dish soap, denatured alcohol and compressed air, or that nitro blast stuff for cleaning.

ive never tried this but ive heard that oven cleaner gets off the residue that comes on your header.

Yes it does but it also takes out the anodized blue from the header and it will make it it's natural color, silver. You can't really do anything about it. What happens is that little leaks from where the header and the engine connect come out, so it goes all over the pipe and just sticks to it.

I would stip off all the paint and get some mothers polish and polish it to a mirror shine. I would look real niceeee

Just what is "Denatured Alcohol", I have seen many references to it, but I think it may have another name here in Blighty!
