Exhaust Manifold Coating??
« on: March 08, 2012, 12:01:27 PM »
What is the best stuff to use? I have access to a sandblaster and would like to get my Exhaust Manifold looking pretty but whatever I use it needs to hold up. I don't want to be coating this thing every 2 years.
I Don't know why. But everybody's always talking about their STI or That guys EVO, I think I'll stick with my old, but reliable AmC. Did I ever tell you I was Full blooded Eagle?

Two options, have it professionally coated, Ceramic Titanium would be my preference, or get a can of the stainless extreme temp paint from Eastwood, I did a set of manifolds in a Triumph TR7/V8 conversion like 15 years ago, and at least last summer when I last looked at them they still looked like shiney recently bead blasted metal

I actually used the VHT Flameproof paint they mentioned in the thread.
Looks good.

Haven't had good longlasting luck with the VHT, however, POR15 makes an Exhaust coating that is INCREDIBLE!  It requires the heat of your engine cure (or I guess you could bake it) so they say to make sure to install them on an engine that can start and run before treating them.. stuff lasts FOREVAHR!

Eastwood has come out with a similar product, though I have never used it.  They generally do pretty good testing though. They have a similar cure protocol and also have an internal coating that I would like to try. 

Good Luck!

Where can I send it to be treated?

I Don't know why. But everybody's always talking about their STI or That guys EVO, I think I'll stick with my old, but reliable AmC. Did I ever tell you I was Full blooded Eagle?

If your motors running, don't worry about baking... just let them dry and install it, your motor will bake it! 

As far as a temp if your motor is not running, contact Tech support at POR15.

I am a fan of ceramic coating, especially for performance. The ceramic cools off faster than some of these other coatings. I have no personal experience with this, but a fella I work with has used ceramic on his headers for drag racing and says it is better for cooling between runs.

I think "Jet-Hot" is a header/exhaust coating place I once looked up about and got a free dvd.......i have seen some headers Jet-Hot coated at car shows, they are a dull glossy gray.Everything was positive about them and the result.
