Engine Paint

What type pf Engine paint is the best. I am thinking of either the POR Engine enamel, or Napa Brand. Any suggestions?

You don't really need to use high temp or engine paint, I use glossy Rustoleom on my rebuilds. Last 350 I did was painted black, really sharp. Block/head temps don't get high enough to burn or discolor paint. Just remember to prep and clean the block well before painting to remove oil.

I've always had the best luck using VHT brand . I believe they make it for napa .
