MP Turquoise on the 440....

PPG 3116 enamel without catalyst on the low deck/raw aluminum heads

PPG Shopline 3116 Single stage catalyzed Urethane on the Hemi

3116 was recommended by Steve Dulcich circa 2001, later on I found out it was the
exact formula MP used on crate engines for many years.

TBH I preferred the coverage of the old enamel the PPG store doesn't want to sell anymore, and
will give the Hemi one more coat + will probably clear coat it with some kind of high solids
clear.

When I run out of 3116 I'm probably going to generic/industrial Omaha Orange as used on various municipal
truck applications and so on as it's more easily obtained in enamel and will use a catalyst.....

They all have their ups and downs, it seems I can more easily get a thin, slightly dull OE looking finish with
spray cans than I can with a gun and higher quality paint, but the higher quality paint lasts longer and looks
much better.

I really like and have been using Duplicolor Engine Primer Grey (DE1612) and Cummins Engine Beige (DE1638) - used it on my 440 to gain another 10 lbs of torque grin

i've done the buy paint and spray it on and rattle can. pro's and cons either way you go. last two i did was plastikote rattle can and it did what i wanted. i'm not sure there's any paint out there that will 100% protect against hot anti-freeze or hot alcohol gas. best bet is to be pro-active with leaks.

I painted my engine first with Mopar Performance paint and got some gasoline on the intake. The paint started to blister. So I stripped the engine again. Sprayed a 6" panel with the Mopar paint and took it to a PPG paint store, They took a digital picture of the panel and mixed the color with their industrial paint mixture. Reduced and hardened required. The color was perfect to the panel, and nothing effects the color; gas or oil. Got it all for $90 with enough for two engines.

All mine are single stage urethane out of a gun. Have some that have been painted nearly 20 years and look new. Just did my race car block and heads. The small block was done in 2003

All my engines are painted with Dupicolor Hemi orange engine enamel. I hit them with light coat of self etching primer first. Then spray orange. No complaints. My Charger 440 Six Pack engine has been in since 2007 and the Challenger Hemi since since 2017. Roached Runner 383 engine is no installed also.

Great subject and Happy Christmas.

I only see one engine paint available for us Limeys!
VHT enamel.

I always put it straight to metal, and a lifetime later I find they have hi temp primer...

It also says “cure at 200 degrees for twenty minutes or run engine”

That would explain why it never lasted lol... violin

I found that 8 years ago on Craig’s list NOS complete, B&M cast the manifold. I will be going with a 671 in the summer time. This little 162 runs out of steam on my 408.

You don’t need high temp paint. Normal car urethane will standup to anything. You can even bondo up parts to make them smooth. Notice the missing Indy logo on the head and valve cover. No pits in the intake. Yup it’s bondo, 9 years and counting.
