Arrow What parts to Ceramic Coat

What parts does it make sense to ceramic coat?

I'm putting on a new turbo, pedestal, and outlet flange. Would all these parts benefit from ceramic coating?

Make the turbo exhaust housing, up-pipes and exhaust manifolds. Everything between the motor and the hot side of the turbo. Cold side of the turbo can get some power coat or paint if you like.

Can you paint both intercooler pipes or just the cold side?

Re: What parts to Ceramic Coat

I always ceramic coat the exhaust manifolds, up pipes, exhaust turbine housing, and down pipe. The cold side can be powdercoated if need be.

I use QC Coatings here in Michigan.

Paint them both, if you want. I had powdercoating on them and started melting it under the hot side boots!

How difficult is it to disassemble the turbo?

I'm planning on going with a 38R. I don't have any experience with turbos at all, so this will be the first time.

What do you mean disassemble? Like take it off the truck or take it apart?\

I've personally never pulled a turbo but it certainly cant be any more than a few bolts, taking exhaust DP off etc..nothing a halfway mechanically inclined person cant handle,

As far as disassembling the actual turbo, hell just start pullin bolts
