High temp paint or not?

It is way early in my jeep build but I was wondering if it is necessary to use high temp paint for the engine ? i was thinking about using a color that matches the body (autumn red metallic). but am unsure if that will work.any ideas?

If the paint is real automotive paint it will do good. Even better if its catalyzed. Acrylic enamel or urathane are the best.
Ive always liked an engine painted body color. Primed or not both will work. Epoxy primer is the best. Last thing is CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN.
