You would need to use heat resistant paint

its a 10 min job, just ensure you remove all the hoses and plugs, also you will need gasket goo for the Throttle body when you remove it

You don't need heat proof paint, preperation is key though. Why not go to a wreckers and see if they will swap for a black one
