if you buy the wrong paint, it will flake over time and your motor will look like shit

I will ask ERL what they use.

its because people dont prep the block and dont follow the directions...aluminum needs to be etched for the paint to adhere well...most companies encourage you to run the block after its been painted to help it cure....

engine paint will never last more than a few years anyway...nothing is truly designed to go through the extremes which engines do...
