Powder coat, Plastikote, Smooth Hammerite etc all work well, doesn't need to be vht.

The only piece that gets warm is where it screws to the cylinder head you can buy engine block paint in spray tins.

powder coating necessitates getting everything shot blasted first and takes it away from my control - if it doesnít have to be vht iíll look at plasticote which i can get from local car parts shop

cheers
