I'm personally using regular paint, although if I didn't have the blanket on there and was souly using the shield I'd say some high temp paint might be a good idea.

Paint is drying on mine. I'll post pics in this thread and also my build thread. Prob tomorrow though by the time paint dries. Just put the last coat on so I can drop the vinyl down and clear it tomorrow.

I went with a turbo blanket. The stock heat shield bolts were seized when we removed it to replace the up-pipe, and it was trash afterwards. The aftermarket heat shields are primarily for aesthetics, and so should be used in conjunction with a turbo blanket (or the OEM heat shield).
