Not sure if I would paint the entire blower. It may cause it to retain heat. You may want to contact Paxton's tech support for their recomendation.

Cool painted blower/supercharger

Go to an auto paint store! Epoxy heat paint! We paint headers and they stay painted. Alumna coat paint can be bought. The blower WILL get hot but not like a header. The fuel/air mix will help cool it and the bearings are probably sealed. Good luck! Could go to a speed shop and ask another racer!
