Powder Coating Intake Manifolds
I m getting ready to have an efi intake done in a couple weeks. A single coating that we recommend would be our dry film.
Powder coating your manifold is a great way to seal the aluminum and preserve it s condition while enhancing the manifolds looks.
Powder coating intake manifolds. I ve coated so many intakes for so many people now i can t even remember just how many. Nothing makes an engine pop like color. In this instance you are dealing with heat that is generated by the engine.
I ve had a number of intake manifolds powder coated. Powder coating intake manifolds. This is another how to video on powder coat this time restoring two intake manifolds from a boat fire this is the link to the powder coat article on my web.
Turned out really nice. The first would be performance the second appearance. It was an edelbrock super vic and the cost to have it powder coated was 90.
It aids in cooling heat sensitive parts and is excellent for superchargers intercoolers radiators cylinder heads intake manifolds brake components oil pans etc. You can also coat the inside of the runners in an intake manifold. If you are sending in your manifold for a service that will require us to weld on the manifold we will be required to remove any prior coatings from the area we are welding.
You will also acquire heat from the hot oil that may be tossed up under the underside of the intake manifold. The powder coating holds up really well to fuel and other chemicals too. There are two reasons for coating an intake manifold.
The intake manifold is one the first things you eye catches when you open the hood. Powder coating parts of your engine not only looks great it s also way more more durable than paint. Last one i had done was a few years ago.
It has very good chemical and corrosion resistance. You can use 1 or 2 coatings. Thermal dispersant rapidly disperses heat away from a coated component and evenly distributes heat over a coated surface.
These are known as fluid retaining coatings and the fuel air mix as it passes through an intake manifold on a carbureted engine is treated like a fluid in motion.
