Exhaust heat from the engine can produce up to 75% of the energy needed to spool your turbo. The main reason for ceramic coating the turbine housing, is to help it better retain heat, which in turn leads to better spool up. Ceramic coating the exhaust side of the turbo also reduces under-hood temperatures, prevents rust and corrosion, increases the durability of the metal, and gives the parts a long lasting finish that looks great. We apply a coating to the turbine housing and bearing housing that is rated at up to 1,800°F. This improves not only the look of the bare cast iron, but the performance as well. Your turbine and bearing housings can be ceramic coated for $95. Stock color options are black, silver, and titanium. Custom colors are available; please call for details and pricing.
Powder coating the aluminum compressor housing provides a durable finish that looks great, and protects the housing from corrosion. Your compressor housing can be powder coated for $50. If you are not ceramic coating your bearing housing, you may choose to have it powder coated for $35 (or $20 if doing it the same color as your compressor housing).
We can do this in almost any color you can imagine, but some options may require special order. Please call for details and pricing.
Porting and polishing the exhaust housing of a turbo makes it less restrictive, reduces turbulence, increases efficiency, and leads to quicker spool up and higher top end power. With the smaller, more restrictive housings on the newer turbos, this is one of the best options for increasing flow through the turbine housing, adding to performance and power. Prices for porting/polishing most turbine housings start at $125.
