If you are doing a resto then I would stay with the factory color.
If that's not the case then any color you wish.
I favor a thin coat of black myself because I read years ago that it helps dissipate heat better.
Black will help dissipate heat faster than other colors. To set backs is 1. To me I don't think looks as cool 2. If you have an oil leak that sob is is gonna be harder to find.

Sure they are, it's half of a 4.6 isn't it.
Go back with the orange or a Ford light or dark blue to make it stand out more. A dark blue with chrome/silver accents would look good.

No, it helps dissipate the heat faster. Now that could lower temps or it may not. It all depends upon your engine and cooling system, it's not a miracle cure for an overheating system.

True.
1. It's not cool it's hot!
2. Oil leaks are easy, look for the wet spot.

Supposed and close to chrome paints, but the supposed isn't even close and the close to is around $800 a quart.


I meant some real chrome accents, valve cover, header, alternator, pulleys, etc., etc..
