I've used high temp paint on exhaust manifolds. I let them dry at shop temp until I'm ready to put them on. Once the engine runs for a while, the exhaust heat cures them and they look great. These rattle can manufacturers that make this stuff must think we all have big curing ovens in our shops.

I use regular automotive paint on engines and never have heat problems...burn-off or discoloration.
