I just got quoated $270 from Jet hot to coat my ATS manifold. Does that sound right ? I want to get the 1700 degree coating . I am thinking coating the turbine housing too.

Actually it sounds right, I got double coated and it was like 495$ with shipping.

Here's a pic for you, I had the second coat done in red, came out almost orange. I then painted it with red VHT high temp paint, looks more red in person.

I got Jet Hot to spray my ats manifold. It was coated in Jet 2000 which is good up to 2450 degrees. I was told that is the only coating that they use on diesel stuff. Be sure to tell them not to coat the joint because they coated mine and now it won't go back together.

why waste the money.... get manifold and turbo exhaust blankets for under $300 and really cut your heat down.

i can put my hand on the turbos and manifold without a problem......try doing that with just the ceramic coated ones

Sounds high - the 2200*F ceramic we use is less than half that.

How the heck do you spray the INSIDE of the exh manifold?
Electrostatically, similiar to powder coating.

well it can be done may not get the best coverage, lol. why is that needed?
Coating the inside of the manifold prevents a percentage of the heat energy from reaching the metal in the first place.

V-band flanges usually have to be resurfaced after ceramic coating for a good seal.

The most effective thermal management scheme is ceramic coating both the
interior & exterior of the exhaust tract in addition to thermal blanketing.
