Sand them or bead/sand blast them to rough them up for the paint to stick.

Ditto on that and most hi temp paints need a heat curring cycle. If possible paint them while still on the car/truck and start the engine and let the pipes warm up, then a cool down and another warm up. The directions will splain everthing..........
