I was wondering what everyone thought about painting my valve covers while i had them off for the cam install. I imagine high-heat temp be sufficient, but if not I'd like to know :) Also, are there any recommendations in terms of application?

high temp spray can paint works well and you can get in many diff colors for painting engines. Just clean them really well with something like Carb cleaner to get any oily residue off that paint wont stick to.
thanks, that's what i needed to know.

i dont know about painting them, they are really hard toget in and out without touching anything and im afrad that you would scrape them against something and then there goes you paint job. powder coating would be cool as it is stronget than paint i would buy the stuff and wait untill you remove them for the cam swap and see exactly how much room you actually do have and i tink that you will change your mind.

ok good point. i havent removed the egr tube when doing my removal and installs so i can see how that might help. allthough there arealot of wiring harnesses and thing there as well. so you will have to be careful. i do know that i can take 6 weeks preping something for paint and it will still have problems. even if i put 3-4 coats of color and 8-10 coats of clear.
