It is quite normal for the pipe/muffler connected to the engine exhaust port to get very hot, especially when the engine is working hard running at speed under load. During daylight it is usually not noticeable, but at night it will visibly glow up to a bright red.

Rear jug getn hot 2 min after start up exhaust getn red hot...stage 2 jet kit..vance&hines exhaust .no baffles 43000 miles

glowing exhausts indicate valve timing, ignition timing or lean fuel mixtures
AS you have altered the jets I would be looking at air/fuel mixture for the rear pot
It is probably the same for the front pot but with an air flow on the exhaust pipe you will not see it getting red

You replaced the Plugs Wires in the wrong
firing order ?

Sort of creates a timing issue & causes the
exhaust to get hot

Other causes,vacuum leaks in to exhaust
or rich fuel mixture,but not to the point of red hot

Red hot exhaust manifods

Make sure that your catalytic converter and exhaust is not plugged..Also check for propper map sensor operation,the reading that the map sensor supplies to the pcm is used to adjust ignition timing and fuel delivery.If the timing is being retarded to far , the exhaust exiting the cylinders will be extremly hot and will produce the effect you are having...Good Luck...
