Sorry. I saw the thread was old, but since I wasn't "around" (here) yet, and it was brought back to the front, I thought I should share my experience with it.

JamesDean,

HUH? Is this supposed to mean something to me? Or is it some sort of "non-comment"? The information posted is 100% true and accurate. I have no dog in this "fight"...

Is what I said commercial advertising, when I am posting facts about a coating that other users are soliciting a response about a question they have? Please republish the comments left for the users requesting the information I provided. Thanks.

Hi Jim, I left a comment, but the moderator deleted it and replaced it with the star dot dot dot. Apparently we crossed the fine line between technical discussion and commercialism.
No Hard Feelings here either.

PS What is "The information posted is 100% true and accurate" relating to?

Jim, the information I put on here for you, was regarding an abradable powder coating, that I cannot mention the name of on here, it has been used on piston skirts in NHRA Pro Mod motors. One of which the engine went lean, the burst panels blew out and 4 non-coated pistons collapsed, 3 of 4 coated pistons survived with no collapse. This same coating can be applied line to line, wearing away only where there is no clearance until there is enough clearance for an oil film to develop.

Thanks for the clarification.

Perhaps you missed my post regarding the blown/alcohol Pontiac? Traditionally, when one buys pistons for a blown/alcohol race engine, they buy 10 pistons instead of 8. Odds of completing the 40 passes the piston/rod combo are "good" for, without "going lean" and burning a piston are pretty slim. Our ownwe/driver/tuner Dave Wilcox is the primary reason for this. He KNOWS what he's doing.

We've been dealing with Thermal Tech for many years. Each of their products has been exactly what they promise. I know about Swain, too, as a friend of mine is also friends with Mr. Swain (I do NOT know him). My friend assures me they are dedicated to quality. Too far away, considering Thermal Tech is 30 miles.

There was a time when there were only a small number of "coating shops" that had good products. That's changed today, as there are many "cottage industry" coating shops out there. If done properly, they seem to have similar results.

FWIW

Jim
