Blueish, purpling?
on: May 24, 2021, 11:13:11 PM
The lower section of the headers, where it goes 4 to 1 on my 2021 has started going purple.

This appears to be a continuous welded section from the headers. Does this suggest titanium?

Simple way to find out, use a magnet. Titanium is paramagnetic and most magnets will not stick to it, there's just a weak attraction .

No, just is hot. Chrome turned blue. Relax and ride.
