Can I paint the stock throttle body if I tape it off everything and use a high temp epoxy paint?

I'm taking it nearly completely off anyway for a spacer recently purchased, I figure now's better time than any.

I did a brief search and came up with little.
Thoughts and comments please.
Thanks

I believe a 'normal' paint will do the job, no need a high-temp one. The temperature at TB not that high, however you must really sure that the surface of the TB are clean enough to get a paint job.

^^ Brake cleaner should be ok if you're completely removing the TB and don't have to worry about the plastic manifold nearby. As J35 said you probably don't need high temp paint. The TB only gets up to engine coolant temperature or less, so < 200F.
