I'm assuming when you say you plan to ceramic coat your exhaust you're referring to the exterior only.Syscrush wrote:Now it's down to some comparatively little stuff (dialing in the suspension, dyno tune for the carbs, new coils & plug wires, ceramic coating the exhaust, upgrading brake pads) and just having fun on it.
I can't tell you how badly I wanna convert this thing to closed-loop EFI with a catalytic converter. Hopefully a good dyno tune will get it running (and cold-starting) well enough to put that out of my mind. But it looks like I'm gonna keep this thing long-term so in a way it would be stupid NOT to do it!
Really what I wanna do next is put a few 10's of thousands of miles on it! I really wish I could make it to the rally this year, but it's not in the cards.
Some coating companies claim improved performance and will encourage the inside of the exhaust be done as well, that happened to me. Faced with that option I called Peter Gray of Pipemasters in Australia and he told me that he has done before and after dyno tests on internal ceramic coatings and found no significant performance increase. A complete waste of money according to Peter.
