Ceramic Coating

Does anyone out there know if putting a ceramic coating on your intercooler pipes is worth anything. I see that one of my stock pipes has a heat foil over one of them and I want to clean it up after I purchase a new intercooler.

For a highly modified truck that's trying to squeeze out every bit of power? Yes.

For a stock or mild truck, no.

Also, that "heat foil" you see is actually sound deadening. Does nothing for temps. Apparently too many old folks complained to Ford that the turbo was too loud.

Ceramic coating on the IC pipes will HURT you more than help you. You want to dissapate the heat in the pipes not hold it in. you most likely wouldn't notice any difference one way or the other but it's the wrong application for ceramic coating. If you want to ceramic coat stuff do the exhaust components.

Ceramic coating is used as an INSULATOR.

Porcelain is used in spark plugs because it does not conduct electricity and is able to withstand the temperature of combustion.
