Anybody have an engine Powder Coated ???

I have a customer that wants to Powder Coat a block. I could swear I had seen an article somewhere saying that it's not a good idea because it holds the heat in the block. Cant see where it would be that much different than paint.
Any thoughts or actual experiences ?
