Has Anyone Painted There CAI

I'm thinking of painting my CAI right now it's just the Black JLT but not sure what color to paint it. Has anyone done this?

I don't see why you can't, just use a high temp engine paint so it doesn't flake when it gets hott. I used non high temp engine paint on some things in my engine compartment and it started to flake under heat.

Yup, my original JLT fender CAI that came with the car was painted to match the car. It did not have any signs of over heating, etc.

Yup, I think that will look good. I've seen a pic somewhere online of a 4.6L that had those blue valve covers and they looked good.

I've been thing of painting mine black with some grabber blue stripes then putting a nice glossy finish. Then I would do the same to the strut tower brace.
