Your turbo probably gets hotter than my T Trim blower but I spin it at max 55k or so. I wire brushed it, scotch brighted it, sprayed it down with carb cleaner, painted it with a high temp etching primer and then painted flat black. Believe it was all Rustoleum high temp paint good to 2000* so they claim. It is holding up well and simple to touch up if the accidentally hit it with a wrench or something, like right now when I am changing lim gasket. I wanted it to look presentable but be easy to take care of, as well as economical. I had everything polished on my last motor and just too expensive and high maitenance.
Thanks for the info guys. I'll scuff and paint the exhaust housing with high temp gray ( the same color I painted my engine and headers). I know it may burn off but I don't plan on diving the car that much so I'm hoping it will last a while.
