I'm going to get some paint this morning to paint my new engine, I'm undecided between black and silver (stock looking). I'm not going to loeave this one bare because I keep my engine really clean, and the aluminium pits a lot from corrosion when it's unprotected. I was going to paint it silver with metalmask or something, a nice professional look and not far off OEM. Then I thought I might paint it black, since everything else is black or is going to be, and I've never seen a blacked-out engine bay. So vote!

Looks like it's going to be black! I'm not worried about leaks, my engines don't leak oil, only pistons :p

I'm going to go ahead and paint everything black with polished/brushed aluminium highlights, like the intake manifold and valve cover are now. The intake tube is getting fresh paint as well, and the tranny too!

good idea on the highlights, that's what I was going to suggest, mostly black with some parts silver.

tu tone ftw.

Black looks nice and clean you dont see much dirt on it better for showing off. yes silver does show signs of leaks early but if you just paid attention to your engine you wouldn't need it to be easier to see. So i say black all the way!!
