I just used the VHT High Temp Paint with the ceramic in

it a few weeks back on my headers.So far so good and didn't smell any of it burning off when i started it up.

VHT and Duplicolor make some really good engine enamel that any ole parts store should carry (i stock it in my Oreilly store).. i honestly use Nason Fastdry Acrylic Enamel or FulBase Bc/Cc without clear. this way you can use the same exact paint on your block as your car body. this can be mixxed anywhere that sales dupont paint. like an O'Reillys or Bumper-2-Bumper. it takes about 1/2 pint which runs about 10 bucks or so. ive got this used on several blocks and only seen one problem where it was cotaiminated with oil
