Normally a blocked catalytic converter or a blocked exhaust will cause that problem. Back pressure, means the gasses cannot escape. thus causing the manifolds to glow.

Plugged converter possibly or other exhaust restriction. exhaust is very very hot, because of this, your exaust manifolds/headers are going to get very very hot, especially if you tend to run high RPMs. if everything else like throttle response is fine, i wouldn't worry

What makes the exhaust manifold get red hot on a 1985 Chevy Suburban with a 350 throttle body?

The exhaust manifolds on a normal, properly tuned vehicle engine WILL NOT overheat to the point they glow unless you have a turbo setup. If this happens you have improper fuel mixture or the timing is off. Even a turbo setup should only have a small bit of orange glow and that's only if you're running the engine hard. This will help you:

What are the functions ofengine inlet and exhaust manifolds?

Inlet manifolds are actually called intake manifold and this is to allow air to be injected into the fuel for either a rich or lean mixture for either performance or gas mileage (which can be adjusted). The Exhaust manifold is used to expel your burnt fuel, or air/fuel mixture, during the exhaust stroke on a 4-cycle engine to allow room for the intake stroke to bring in your fuel, or air/fuel mixture. The exhaust manifold simply directs the exhaust and become extremely hot. The exhaust is pushed out by the exhaust stroke.
