Default GrimmSpeed PnP/Coating

i will be looking into their services after my purchase of a bugeye. im looking into the intake manifold,throttle body, and up-pipe PnP with their jet hot coating on all parts. im curious if this is effective or not. i know it wont be huge numbers, but im looking forward to a cooler motor. can i get some feedback from these upgrades as well as has anybody wrapped these parts, or even just the up-pipe after the coating?

well i wanted to start with those parts. as a stage one type upgrade. then move to their exhuast manifolds with crossover. and maybe ship in some other stuff to get done. like you said an exhaust itself. like up to the muffle. but i think that may be overkill. cause i have plans for CODC "heat repealant" im installing in some areas to reflect heat soak.

....keeping heet in the exhaust is always a good thing.....and I am the LAST one to be predisposed to 'overkill' on any of this kind of thing.

the right $$$ spent on the right stuff is THE answer....knowing what 'the RIGHT stuff' is is the key

also wanted to know wether or not heat wrapping it will be a waste after its coated? and besides all the mods ive listed, plus their header/cross over pipe. and maybe exhuast tubing, what other mods can be commonly treated to repel heat? i want to get a turbo shield as well and have multiple things covered in the CODC heat repelant foil found on some F1 cars and a few race cars to prevent heatsoak.

Intake manifold coating would be ill-used without their phenolic spacers IMO. Definitely get those and do the TB coolant bypass mod if you're doing that, it makes a huge difference in the intake manifold temp just by itself.

Yesterday we had our first low 60 degree night since I have wrapped/coated/pnped everything. I hit a little over 18psi with ease and after 20 minutes of driving I popped the hood only to feel almost no heat. The ic was cold and I could even grab the intake manifold and it was just warm. The turbo shield was hot but I could still touch it (its coated as well). Last year under the same conditions without the coatings/wrapping there would have been no way I could have done that. It makes a big difference if not just underhood temps.

I can touch my intake manifold on a 80-90 degree day and it only be warm..... Grimmspeeds 8mm phenolic spacers FTW!!!

Isn't coating the intake manifold ill-advised due to it keeping the air hot? That's my understanding, anyway. Don't you want to 'disperse' the heat from the manifold rather than keep it. Port and polish for sure, though. And, +1 for GrimmSpeed and phenolic spacers. But might as well do their TGV deletes too.

I have Grimmspeed pnp manifolds and the cross pipe, both coated. I do like the product and the turbo spools rather nicely. But the coating that was used on those parts is rather thin and it flakes off rather easily. I ended up taking the crosspipe off and wrapping it also. Jethot coatings are different from Grimm's. Jethot is another coating that costs more but well worth the extra price. My downpipe and uppipe are Jethot coated and you can hit that with a hammer and it want chip off. I would hate to have my manifold coated and it start to chip off. I would and will still by stuff from Grimm but I will choose to have my stuff coated by Jethot. My 2 cents.

I've purchased quite a few parts from Grimm Speed. I have and will continue to recommend them for pnp/coating work. Decent cost, good customer service, good quality.

Yeah, so who's telling the truth then? Is the coating delicate or isn't it?

I haven't noticed any issues with mine, but I've only had my parts installed for about a month though...

I'll take a look tonight and post something if I see any problems.

Well the truth to my experience with the coatings was what I had stated. This was my personal experience and was offered by Grimmspeed to have the items recoated and he would pay for shipping. I just decided not to since I had already purchased the wrap. But I do believe that the coating is rather thin compared to Jethot. The products that I purchased from him are of good quality as was the pnp job done to the manifolds. I'm not bashing Grimmspeed at all, the coating was just not what I thought it would be.
