No auto manufacturers painted their aluminum transmissions.Paint tends to make a transmission[or any aluminum product] operate at a bit warmer level,as it hinders the aluminum's natural ability to cool. Same theory applies to radiators,heads,external coolers,etc.You can paint it,lots of people do,it's a preference thing.
