You'd be better using heat wrap rather than attempting to paint it.

Tech Line Black Satin can be applied at home, you'd need the manifold shot blasted to get it clean enough to apply.

You'd get a superior finish with a professional job.

Not personally, found a few threads online a while back which seemed to say the obvious, preparation is key.
I though after you'd paid for shotblasting and the paint, it's probably not much more to have the lot done by someone anyway?

Still, the choice is there for anyone who wants it.
