Well, it certainly looks good on the outside! Why exactly did you worry about the inside?
That's a good question - it just seemed like the right thing to do, being that the OEM had a finish. By covering over all the inside surfaces (except the flappy valve area), I know the old finish will never peel or flake off. Perhaps it wasn't necessary, but it makes my display intake look cool!

Looks really great! I've used 2K urethane and also the newer ceramic enamel paint. While not "hi temp", it also does just fine on the intake and valve covers.
It is some labor to chip all the old paint off!
I agree, High Temp is overkill.
My original was not difficult to scrape the old finish off as most of it would just flake off. The used one I got was already refinished (poorly) by someone - that one was a bitch to scrape.
