Actually there's heat and there's HEAT. The cheap chinese Red I got for $1 a bottle does keep exhaust nuts on (200 something deg) but easy to remove with a propane.
One trick is to double nut exhaust with Red on the outer one only. That way by using 2 wrenches the outer one comes off without pulling the stud. Then easy peasy for the inner which has no threadlock at all.
There is a SUPER HIGH TEMP red that works at even higher temps but it's outrageous expensive (too rich for my blood).
