Ford gray high temp engine paint works well for the upper intake manifold. I used it on mine about 10 yrs ago and it's still holding up great.

That looks good, nice and clean.  Man, trying to pic colors for my engine is a project to it self. But I’m leaning towards a blue block, water pump  and heads with black ford racing valve covers not sure yet about upper and lower intakes. My engine now.

Ford blue block, heads, lower intake. Black upper intake and Cobra valve covers. Looks good, in my car at least.

So I was thinking to myself about how I should approach this rebuild. I have a friend that is letting me use his garage so initially I was going to do just the engine but then I got to thinking that at some point I’m going to have to pull this trans and rebuild that too, so while I have the space to work maybe I should take full advantage of my space I’m using. I already got an 8.8 rear with 3.73 gears that I’m starting to work on now it’s so funny how you can start off doing one thing and then you fall into a rabbit hole. But the way I understand it, is that each system           (engine, trans, and Differential) depends on the other for optimum performance.
