I have used the piston top coating many times, but I have never done the application myself. I use only coated bearing in race engines. And, I get the inside and outside of race engine headers coated, mainly to keep underhood temps down.
I dont have any empirical data on the use of the coatings but I use extremely light weight pistons in oval track engines and the thin deck thickness of the piston is a concern for me.
