Default Engine Paint

I'm not sure how hot the intake manifold will get on an '06 WRX. It is mostly stock for now but I am planning on getting anywhere close to 480-550 HP within the next couple of years, which will definitly increase the thermal output of my motor.

What I really want to know is, do you think that brake caliper paint rated to 900 F will be sufficient for the intake manifold and will it be able to handle it after all of the upgrades and tuning as well? Or should I go with actual engine paint wich is rated to like 1000-1200 F. Im pretty sure that my engine is not getting that hot at all but I just want to make sure.

I'd probably stick with the engine paint. May as well use the correct product so you don't have to take it apart and do it again. It's been awhile since I've painted an engine, but I think they make manifold paint for exhaust parts that has an even higher temperature rating than engine paint... intake manifold should be okay with regular engine paint though
