Re: ceramic coating?

its good for any power level.... helps the turbo spool better and actually keeps temps DOWN because it keeps the heat in...

Re: ceramic coating?

Needed? IMO, rarely, if ever is it actually a must have, especially on a street truck. Beneficial on everything though, again, IMO. Looks nice too if done on the outside as well.

Re: ceramic coating?

It works wonders on exhaust component durability. I try to only coat the insides when possible that way it keeps the heat out of the part as best possible and any heat that does make it past the coating is radiated away through the uncoated side quickly.

I warped the driver's side manifold and sheared off the rearmost bolt twice. I coated the inside of it and never had another minutes trouble.

I will be coating my compound setup this week to protect it from rust. In that case I will have to coat both sides.

The stuff works. My manifold still looked like it had never been ran after months.

Re: ceramic coating?

There are some coatings for pistons, I don't know much about them just know you can get coated pistons. I think you can put it on just about anything...

Re: ceramic coating?

coat the manifolds, uppipes, and exhaust housing for best results...

IIRC some guys have coated the exhaust runners in the heads too...

and yes I heard the coated pistons are very nice...
