Base/Clear will work just fine on your drivetrain. Just make sure everything is clean, spray a coat of epoxy primer and then your base/clear. You'll have a good looking and long lasting finish.

I would not use BC/CC on the engine. It won't last long with the heat. The cars that you see with the engine painted the same color as the car are usually trailer queens or they have special high temperature paint mixed for them.

That is contrary to what I am seeing. BC/CC is far superior to anything that comes from a rattle can. A catalyzed paint (BC/CC) will hold up very well on an engine & drivetrain.
