Rusty Headers

Hi All, I changed my oil for the first time last night. While under there, I was surprised to see how rusty the headers are. I've seen the pics of rusty undersides of our cars, even brand new ones. My car looks good underneath overall, but the headers sure are rusty. Common I suppose?

Looks normal to me, when i bought im srt shorty’s they were clean and silver. Barely used but after many heat cycles and weather changes, they started to change color and slightly rust. Not as bad as what i see here though, begs me to ask what kind of weather you live in?

Anyway its just the integrated heat shield rusting on there. If it bothers you aesthetically then spray it down with some rust solvent

If you live in a state that uses brine on the streets it will cause metal to rust like crazy.
