Ok, just out of curiosity, if I paint my motor with a high temp paint, will I need to prime it first? I know the rule when painting an engine is to put as little on as possible so the engine can cool properly, but I have never seen if anyone is priming it before they paint it.

I've never used a primer but it may not be a bad idea as long as the primer is high temp also. My paint seems to stick pretty good but it does need a little touch up after 20 years.

20 years is enough convincing for me to not prime it :)
