It seems when someone doesn't know what color to paint their engine, they really want red. Steve (CTR)

Steve, don't forget how you painted mine blue to match the body color.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR PHYSICS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT, I'D BE UNSTOPPABLE

My engine came on a sort of Chevrolet orange....which I later changed to Ford Red. Whatever color you choose, I would say that a darker one would be a good choice (as it does not show dirt that well),
cheers,
Abel

The PO of my mini insisted on a red head with a normal green block for some old school reason, I guess whatever you choose should work with the body color.

I have a customer who has no opinion on anything but when he'd like his car back. We talked about engine size, camshafts, wheel and tire combos, gear ratios even colors. I have done a lot of green, black, burnt red, yellow, even battleship gray. Does anyone have a pic of something different. The best I could get was he does not favor black. Steve (CTR)
