Only if the person you have doing it is using low temp powder. I've been powder coating engine pieces for a 1929 Chrysler Roadster and 56 Ford Crown Vic over the last 10 years with my grandfather who taught it onto me, I use the same paints he does and have included a picture to an engine block that was powder coated some time ago so that you can see the result the coating standing the test of time on a super high heat engine. I use a particular paints that won't break down with solvents or high temps leaving a nice long lasting coat that I still get to sport every day.
