I'm no expert on this subject. All I can say is that I've seen a lot of carbon fiber cans, and none of them have ever had any discoloration. Also many cars get CF hoods, many of which have modded engines that produce a lot of heat, and they don't have any problems with discoloration either. I would say that you shouldn't have too much to worry about.

There have been problems with the Muzzy Carbon Fiber cans. See their website. They do not recommend their cans for sustained high speed operation (i.e. Dyno runs). They have been replacing damaged units for their customers. I haven't heard of any issues with other manufacturers Carbon cans. My wife's F4i has an M4, no issues.
