why use high temp paints...

I use non-high temp paint all the time with no problems. If it were brakes and rotors, yes. An intake? why. Just use any paint you want. Whatever looks good.

maybe people are concerned since the tube sits right above the header... in any case hi temp engine enamel is only like a dollar more compared to regular paints, so why not spend the extra buck?

Cause most of dem don't look very good, nor are available in as many colors.

My intake is painted MSM with no problems.

Do you have any pics of your intake, Sophie? I got an MSM too and was planning to paint the PLP intake MSM or some sort of silver.
