ceramic coat

Has anyone tried this on the exhaust parts? manifolds, up pipes, turbine housing (prolly not that one), down pipe? what's the going rate? every site says call for pricing, obvious on that one. If not, how about heat wrap? trying to lower underhood temps and keep exhaust pipe heat sink near the transmission low as possible.

I work with people entrusted to maintain and repair $110 million airplanes, but can't change a car battery.

Re: ceramic coat

I had Jet Hot coat my bellowed up-pipes and downpipe. It cost $195.00 shipped to have the the pipes done in "extreme sterling". I believe this coating may only be good to 1300, which for me is plenty. You could go with the 2000, but that coating was only available in matte colors. I wanted a polished finish. I would recommend a color other than black on the up-pipes. This way you can see if there is any exhaust leak. If I ever need new manifolds, I will likely have them coated. With Jet-hot, you measure the length of pipe and they will give you a good estimate. I remember being very pleased.

Re: ceramic coat

sounds good. i was gonna have everything but manifolds done. id do them too but i doubt ill get them off without drilling and tapping at least 3 studs. you prolly cant do a turbo exhaust housing could you?

Re: ceramic coat

Most retailers offer a exhaust housingfor ceramic option if you buy a turbo. Usually $40-130 extra. Have seen posting of guys getting the new Dorman bellowed up pipes coated for $100.

Re: ceramic coat

Not sure where in NC you are located, Jet Hot has a large facility near Burlington, NC. Could save $$ dropping off instead of shipping.

I have not read anything on before/after under hood temperatures and if under coating is worth the $$.

I have an ATV with an after market exhaust that will melt plastic and your leg. I looked into getting it coated but everything I read was performance benefits and not how effective it would be as an thermal insulator.

Insulating pads, tape etc may work better.

Re: ceramic coat

I was under the impression that insulating tape could result in rot. The ceramic coat should make the pipes much cooler to touch. I did it to keep everything nice and clean looking. I would do the manifolds for this reason and the idea that it will keep them cooler to the touch. I would not expect any performance benefit.

I think you are referring to header wrap and I can see why that may trap stuff that would lead to corrosion. I was talking about something like this.

I would love to see before and after data on what ceramic coating will do to reduce under hood and cab heat.
