I'm thinking to put on some emblems on the engine cover, any suggestion to what kind of adhesive I should use that can withstand heat heat and not permanent? Thanks.
That sounds good, what kind of permatex did you use? can I use the same one to attach the emblems?On my new cf valve cover thing, I took off the insulation strip form the stock cover and use permatex to attach it to the underside of the cf cover no problems. You might be able to use some silicone adhesive. I think you can get some to got to 450ish degrees F.
My under-lid insulation was falling down and blocking air flow through the vents.That sounds good, what kind of permatex did you use? can I use the same one to attach the emblems?
I had the same problem with my insulation, too. After cleaning the metal with nail polish remover I used Gorilla glue,(white). It's only been a couple of weeks but so far so good.My under-lid insulation was falling down and blocking air flow through the vents.
I used Permatex WeatherStrip Adhesive to glue it back in place.
It has worked quite well, but the stuff is maddeningly messy to use.

So common plastic emblem won't be able to withstand the engine heat right? which silicone sealant did you use?i covered the cowboy hat on my engine cover. the flat piece of plastic that i used wasn't heat resistant enough so i replaced it with a piece of aluminium painted flat black with high temp paint. i used silicone sealant to affix it with.
initially i had the MR2 emblem from the rear bumper cover on it . then i removed that and glued on an aluminium screamin' chicken it's worked fine now for a couple of years
