I sent my pistons, valves, main and rod bearings off for coatings by FFWD Connection in Oklahoma. www.ffwdconnection.com
I got the piston tops and valve faces ceramic coated, and the piston skirts and bearings coated with a molybdenum film
This process should help concentrate my cylinder temperature within the cylinders. They should help reduce rotating resistance, and hopefully, reduce intake heat soak. One major benefit, is that the piston tops shouldn’t melt.
I also saw my brothers old Montero. One of many.
And the heater is going.
