You shouldn't need high heat paint.An engine should not get hot enough to burn paint.Maybe around the exhaust .

Larry, I agree with Maynard, you can use enamel on the engine. It will burn around the exhaust area

I used high heat paint and it just seems to wear off the engine really easy. I wouldn't do it again. A muffler, yes, but not on engine block and tin.

I agree, just use regular engine enamel. In addition high heat paint, even on an exhaust manifold, doesn't seem to hold up long.

I just use stove paint (again and again) on hot surfaces.  :mad2:
