Thanks .. No I dont think im going to paint it.. Honestly looks to good and to clean to ruin it. I think with all the covers and new oil pan put back on it itll look good.. Unless you guys say paint it because for some reason thats the way its supposed to be ????...

Cloaked: It was expensive lets say that lol.. But brand new motor completely in and out and made by a company who built it with marine specs. 2 year warranty etc.

I think most of the LT-1s were painted black. I would think you would want to paint it or it will rust in the marine environment. You could also go with a silver to match the exterior flake. Now so the time to do it while it is outs of the boat and clean.

Yes, the LT-1 is painted black, or at least it is in my MC.

As mentioned earlier, I would definitely encourage painting the engine. It may look pretty now, but that will go away quickly once you start using it. I like the silver idea; that would add to the unique vibe that this boat already has being an Anniversary Edition.
