Default do you believe in coatings?

I do! But, I'm curious of actual charted gains of these mysterious anti-friction and heat coatings. Ever gone over a turbo kit completely with them? Pipes (int/ex.), intercooler. Curious about this. It seems like the coatings aren't the trick, but the tuning potential they offer is the real cream in the twinkie.

"Cream in the twinkie"???????

You want to be kicked off this board for that kind of language? [lol]

I would like to coat myself with Britney Spears!!!!

Sorry, I had nothing productive to add, but I thought I might get the ball rolling.

Well it is true that the hotter the gases the faster they move which makes the turbo spool faster. Also it helps keep the heat inside the exhaust and not let it out into the engine bay to add to the heat soak. Its just hard to find a shop that will cheaply do the ceramic coating. Its alot easier to just get exhaust wrap.

Hey, I heard Exhaust wrap is expensive... Is there any material that does the same job? I work at Home Depot and I asked around, everyone says to go look at a fireplace shop. Which makes sense because they probably use some wrap for fire place chimneys and whatnot. Anyways im going to check there. Anyone else got ideas?

it's like $2 a yard IIRC, however it's sold in 30 yard chunks....$60 ain't bad though.....I've always heard it was kinad bad for the piping though, keeping the heat in causes crappy piping to crack and stuff...this is all what I've heard from old school VW's that came from the factory with exhaust wrap.

I've got nothing productive to add either...just looking for charts of gains if they're around. I wonder what any of this stuff could do in the tranny.

I like twinkies & Britney

On a serious note :
I'm planning on coating almost everything on my car. I got an estimate on how much would it cost by item:
-Manifolds $85.95
-Headers $99.95
-Down Pipes $80.95
-Intakes $75.95
-Calipers $60.95 (a pair)

It's guaranteed to lower temps by 20%, not to corrode & can be coated in metallic, black, blue and/or white

saludos,

Mariano

Cool! I'm curious if that's the heat retention coating. Hope so. I had planned on htat in the exhaust, and radiant heat coating for the intake stuff. Jet Hot's prettier .
