I love this stuff! Another KBS gold star
If you are careful with prep/degreasing/etc, then this will be a great base for the high temp paint. I coated an aluminum intake with this, then went over with KBS aluminum hi-temp paint. Simply outstanding. I'd recommend a heat cure after top coating, rather than curing in use, for exhaust as well, just because of uneven heating. Personally, I wouldn't use this without a top coat, it seems a little porous to me, but apparently you can, according to the label. I suppose heat curing solves that problem, though, so perhaps it's fine. Intake manifolds just aren't going to get hot enough for a good cure, I don't think, so I baked mine in my propane BBQ grill for 30 minutes...champion finish overall. I put several coats on a large 6-cyl intake, and the can is more than half full, so it will go a long way.
