Doc Race - Could you tell us who do yall coating? What the Specs?

We coated this turbo manifold. Over the years we tried several coatings from several companies and all of them except for this one have deteriorated. We finally found a coating that withstands all of the abuse our customers put them through and it's been on all of our HPF turbo kits for the past 4 years. Underhood temps are extremely cool with the HPF turbo kits and this is one of the reasons why. Go to a track day and check out the underhood temps after an HPF M3 does a 30 minute session. Quite amazing.
