If its a show car where everything is judged I can see it being worth it but if not IMO not worth it

Re: Block...

I wouldn't put anything to thick on the block of a street driven car as it will affect the heat dissipation. The best thing to use is a thin coat of black paint as it helps get rid of the heat a bit better than a bare block or other colors.
