ceramic coating

I am about ready to get a new turbo. I was just wondering if it is worth the cost of having the exhaust housing and up pipes ceramic coated, what are the benefits. I donít mind spending the money but donít want to if it will not make much difference. The turbo I am thinking of getting is the garrett 38r with the bellowed up pips.

99 F350 4x4 175-143 injectors. Custom tuning done by DP-tunner, BTS tranny, Garrett 38r, coated up-pipes and exhaust housing. 6.0 intercooler from BWD, 4 inch turbo back exhaust and 4.10 gears. Truck put down 396 hp when tuned by dp-tunner.

Re: ceramic coating

I wouldn't waste my time with coating anything that wasn't prone to heat induced warping or corrosion.

I'm assuming the up-pipes are Stainless? And the housing is definately not going to be an issue.

Only thing I coated were the manifolds and my ductwork for the compounds. And only the insides. If I did it over again I would make the entire system out of 304 stainless and forget the coating now that I know it can be done that way.

Re: ceramic coating

I have heard there was a good coating place in SLC so at least it would be east to get done. Jumping off the TN ride?

Re: ceramic coating

all of my exhaust to the turbo is coated.WOP had it done when I purchased the QSSB kit.Payed xtra 200 bucks I think.It sure keeps the heat from radiating.I think it helped the spool too.

Re: ceramic coating

Charles, i thought you were pro-coating insides only, and not the outside, just only for looks really... I learned from you that you want to trap the heat from reaching the pipe (figuratively speaking as far as considering where the coating will go) instead of coating the outside of the pipe and have the pipe heatsoaked and no where to go...?

Re: ceramic coating

You're absolutely right. I wrote that ass-backward in that post. Do not EVER coat the outside only. Always coat the inside and don't coat the outside unless you have to. And if you have to coat the outside, you then must coat the inside to give it a fighting chance.

Thanks for catching that.

Tom, can you fix that typo so it doesn't give people the wrong idea? I'll send you a PM.

Re: ceramic coating

Yes I am going to change from the tn. I hope the garrett will work better for me. I was looking at the hte but I don't think I will have the fuel for it.
It sounds like it is a good thing to coat the inside of the housing and up pipes. Are there places that I can order the turbo from that do the coatings or do I need to take the parts in after I buy them.
Thanks for the help.

Re: ceramic coating

I would talk to David Lott, I am pretty sure he has a connection with a coater. Some of the other sponsors on here may as well and they might even send you a PM when they spot this thread. Also check the for sale section.
