Get some cerakote air cure - c series ( some colors good up to 1800 degrees) and coat them in your garage with the 0.8 touch up gun from harbor freight.I have not gotten that far yet. I'm still planning on getting the headers and Y pipe ceramic coated.
Wait, you are doing a Magnum swap, right?
Roller cams do not require a cam break-in procedure. Most newer engines fall into this category. Simplifies the coating issues. I also like to do a few short heat Cycles on new parts.
They do have the silicone spray for the wraps. Definitely use the titanium one. Heavy silicone spray coats after. Nice and tight.I bet dirt and mud will cling to the wrap too. What a pain that'd be to wash...
I used this and titanium wrap in my old aircooled beetles, my 1.8t cars and the v6 twin turbo Audi. No issues in the NY winters.View attachment 180201
Header wrap sealant I just saw.
Yup, exactly what I was getting at reference the magnum. You should be gtg. I am waiting until you get it all done to read your build thread and maybe copy. I very much need me some 360 in my life ☺️
Definitely a celebratory moment to say the least!! Once all these swaps are done, maybe a Magnum TJ club can be in the worksI keep getting closer to having it done. The day I turn that key and this thing cranks over I am pretty sure you'll hear me yelling and celebrating all the way in VA.
Checking in on an old thread. What did you do and how do you like it?
I had the Y-pipe ceramic coated and installed ceramic coated headers and so far haven't had it running long enough to be able to really tell. But with a IR thermometer I'm seeing under 200* at the header pipes. IMO that's a pretty good heat signature off the tubes.
