Are you talking REAL Candy Apple or just brite red. Real candy is transparent and has to be applied over a white, gold or silver base, then cleared. I wouldnt recommend that on an engine. If your just talking a nice red, I paint engines for a lot of cars to match the body. I just use regular basecoat/clearcoat auto paint. Holds up just fine. All of them, including Hi-Temp will burn a little near exhaust ports. I never bother with Hi-Temp engine paint. Same with brake calipers. You can even just use plain old Rustoleum or Krylon spray can on calipers. Lasted over 4 years on the Ferrari kit and both Corvettes.
