Here's another vote for the Duplicolor.
They have a version that is heat resistant up to 1200 degrees F. It will rinkle if you lay it on too thick, or if you don't wait long enough to spray your second coat. I've used it on 14 engines, and have had excellent results.
Another tip. If you want to paint your engine a color that Duplicolor doesn't make, find one that they do make that is close, and lay it on good, about two coats, then scuff it with a gray scotch brite pad lightly, then spray on your color of choice, again, about two coats, and then you have an engine painted any color that you want. This works very well for anyone that wants to paint their engine the same color as the body, or trim.
Hope this helps!
