Does anyone know what the maximum temperature is of the exterior of the engine block? I'm curious since I have to paint components on/near the block, and I am not sure if I should go with a high-temp paint or just Por-15.

Thanks,

P. Hewes

I always use medium-high temp (like 300 degF) engine block paint on my blocks. Never peels, unless the surface was dirty to start with. On exhaust manifolds, you have to go to higher temperature paint, 500F and up.
