Internal Engine Coatings

3500 head and 3.4 camaro pistons coated with CBX POWERKOTE (Cermet Coating Thermal barrier)

Designed for Performance engines running; Nitrous oxide, Supercharged or Turbocharged. For all other applications use CBC2. Creates a hard surface specifically designed for engines running High volumes of fuel and/or high compression ratios.
Thermal barrier coating.
Reduces part temperature. Keeps heat in combustion chamber longer through the power stroke.
Increase torque and H.P. Increase combustion chamber efficiency.
Reduce fuel consumption.

Nice! Do you think this is worth it? I haven't really done any reading on internal coatings

This is one of the better coatings to do for boost and high compression engines. Anything that reduces friction and keeps the heat in the combustion and exhaust is going to help. We haven't done any back to back testing on the dyno but those that have do show gains. Its also a durability improvement, if you want to take a torch to your piston What melts uncoated will stay protected with the coating.

Just pulled the 3.4 camaro pistons out of the oven for the skirt coating, since they don't come with anything on them from the manufacturer. This will help with break in mostly, wearing away completely where needed and maintaining the coating where there is clearance. I also do a dry film on the cylinder walls of the block to help with ring seating. Bearing and valve stem coatings are next to test out.

I had internal coatings done on my last engine. Swaintech did the piston tops (piston skirts came coated from Diamond Pistons), and on the heads the combustion chambers, exhaust ports, and valve faces were all coated.
For a street car; nah, save your money.
For an all-out race motor - maybe.
