I usually give my cleaned intakes a light mist coat of "cast blast". Especially the factory castings that have porosity and color issues. It looks better than a tank or detergent cleaned intake and is near impossible to detect on a blasted intake. It resists fingerprints better and clearcoats well. Fuel will make it dissolve and run tho.

Well I was thinking about doing the same as I've got some VHT exhaust 'as cast' finish paint left over. Looks great and will look good on the intake as well. Most paints should be fine on the intake, but you won't go wrong with the VHT stuff, and they do make the paint your after that's 1500 degree F rated.

I think bob is talking about a different product that you are. I have used the duplicolor engine paint on alot of stuff and it will even withstand brake fluid for short periods. If you wipe it off it is just fine. I use it for alot of small chassis parts and brackets.

reading the label on this duplicolor can, which is what i've been using, i don't know what are you using Bob? it says: rebuilders CAST FINISH 500 degree coating, resists oil, brake fluid and gasoline. sounds good, hoping Bob didnt use THIS stuff. however, as we all know, gas resistant (or water resistant) doesn't mean gas or water PROOF.
