I bead blasted my aluminum heads and intake to get the paint off.
Now they look white. Is there a way to get back that nice "fresh out of the box as cast" look.

You don't need to coat aluminum with anything after you blast them. If they're bare you can even use a glass bead cabinet and just be real careful to avoid any surfaces like valve seats etc.
I have however had real good luck, spraying cast alum. parts down with wd-40 after they've been blasted. This tends to keep them looking better longer.

I recently used a wire wheel on air motor after blasting mine, it brought back that shiny as cast look and didnt leave any scratch marks either.
