Default what color paint for heads and block...

I have flat black valve covers and im painting my intake manifold grey/silver. Engine bays a semi-gloss black, cars a silver. What color should i paint my block and heads? Should i just paint them the same color as my intake manifold? Any suggestions?

I wouldn't go with silver or black believe that would bea little over kill on those colors. Maybe Ford engine blue or red. What year is the car?

I have always liked red on blocks. I recently went with black, but that is because my car is red.


Edit: Why arent my pictures working anymore?
