Their stuff is nice, seen some other people that have used them in the past and been very happy with the results. Whenever I get another project of something that will be fast I plan on using them for several coatings on the inside of the engine

+1 on never using them but hearing nothing but positive stuff from them from other racers. When I do decide to build another car I am for sure going to be having some stuff done by them.

Nice.
Like I said my next project will be coated on the inside and probably turbo and the intercooler.

I am really leaning towards a Chrysler Conquest TSI

They look really good. Did they coat the inside of the rods where the bearings lay?

They leave the bearing and wrist pin location in bear metal. My bearings are calicoated http://www.calicocoatings.com/ , and my wrist pins are aftermarket , and Casidiam coated http://www.anatechltd.com/ .

So far everything has worked as they advertise, I plan to get my tial housing and turbo manifold done here within the next month. My downpipe is to much of a pain to get off, so I'm just going to leave it for now.

I'll post pictures of the housing once its done in a few months.
