Does Ceramic coating the Upipes and the turbo really make a big difference in turbo spoolup?

thanks,
Andrew

not a big difference..but it can mean the difference between melted and not melted up pipes. but will definitely help somewhat with spoolup. did you get a new turbo yet?

No the turbo is not dead... I was thinking about doing it on this turbo. But I due plan on going bigr but I need to close a few escrows before I can play with the truck some more. I am planning on going bigr in Late Aug or early Sep.

thanks for the info.

It helped mine a ton. but I did everything from the mans to the Turbo outlet. I also might have regained just a bit of boost by fixing all the leaks in the up pipes. LOL

I want CC everything also but will have to wait a until i got some free time and spare cash. What is the cost to do everything? I got all my boost leaks fixed and it did make a noticeable difference. :D

I noticed a difference with the ceramic coated up-pipes. I got BWD's first set and did some before and after tests for him. They did make my boost needle climb a little quicker.

Which we all know is the one thing that you are looking for ;)

How much is a typical Ceramic Coating of the turbo or up pipes?

Is someone working on better Up Pipes for the H2e setup?

I did my coating to keep the heat off the trans, engine and valley. I am not into bling-bling and what spool-up it adds was a plus not a prerequisite.

With new donuts on good pipes doesn't seem to be an issue. Reuse what collector?




And Mike who's idea was it to add the Sword-fighter? :swordfight: I can't seem to find the rainbow icon. :)

I would like to have a flexible connection to avoid future leaks.

Wrapping the exhaust components is the absolute best way to kill them. Holds the heat in, but doesn't keep any of it out of the part like coating the inside would. Death to components comes from wrapping them.

Stock up-pipes are worthless. The collector and dounuts and pipe bs is hopeless. No provision to accomodate the unavoidable expansion/contraction.

I've killed three sets of them all new each time, including the pipes themselves, as if that really matters.

My guy in Ga charges me $18 per linear foot to coat the inside and outside of anything with the black 2000* stuff.

I would never in 2 million years even consider ever putting the stock up-pipe crap back on any engine it ever came off of. A set of DI uppies would go back on or I'd make some myself.

Almost every stock truck we have has some varying amount of exhaust leak at the collector/dounut region. They are STOCK. And yet I drive around at 1800degrees WOT with probably 2 or 3 times the drive pressure and......nothing, no leaks in the uppies. No leaks at all.

Now the manifolds are a different story... workin on that right now
