Hiperformancestore offers high heat ceramic coatings capable of
withstanding over 1300F. These coatings are ideal
for exhaust manifolds.
Not only do our ceramic coatings look great, they provide an effective thermal
barrier. These coatings help keep the heat in the exhaust system, and out of your engine
compartment. We can coat almost any type of exhaust manifold in our shop near Tulsa
These coatings offer the following advantages over uncoated or painted manifolds:
|Increased horsepower: Keeping the heat in the exhaust manifold helps
maintain a high exhaust gas velocity improving flow and in some cases exhaust scavenging.
This has been well documented by famous engine builders and authors like David Vizard and
Smokey Yunik. |
|Increased horsepower 2: Yes, I am listing this reason twice. That's
because our coatings improve performance in two ways. We all know keeping your intake air
cool helps horsepower and torque. In all cars, even those with a cold air intake a certain
amount of engine compartment heat soaks into the intake system and into the air flow. The
thermal barrier our coatings provide reduces the heat that gets into the intake system
reducing intake air temperatures. |
|Appearance: Ceramic coated manifolds look great. Choose
our Steel Grey coating with it's OEM like appearance. We will be offering
other colors soon. Our coatings will look great in your engine bay, and they will
|Emissions: Our coatings will reduce your vehicle's emissions by helping
the catalytic converter reach its operating temperature more quickly, and stay there.|
|Reliability: The life of many underhood components is often cut short by
exposure to heat. Our coatings will reduce your underhood temperatures by up to 20F.
Obviously our coatings also protect the exhaust manifolds from corrosion. |
Pictured below is our "Steel Grey" coating. We coat these
manifolds inside and to form an outstanding thermal barrier.
Email for quote! Prices for
typical exhaust manifolds are as follows: 4 cylinder (one piece),
4 cylinder (two piece manifolds) , 6 Cylinder and 8 Cylinders. Prices for
full length headers are typically about 25% higher. It's impossible to have a complete
list of pricing options due to the tremendous variation in exhaust manifold designs.
Extra prep work: Bead blasting: $50.00.
As an example, a manifold that has been on a non running car for years, stored outside,
covered in a 1/4 inch of grease, or sometimes just really old will usually take quite of
bit of extra work to remove the rust, dirt and grime.

Frequently Asked Questions:
|Do you coat manifolds inside and out? Yes, absolutely, that results in a
more effective thermal barrier, and protects the manifold from internal corrosion and
|What color choices are available? We offer "Steel Grey" for an
OEM look. We will have other colors available shortly. All three colors are
|Why don't you have red, blue, orange etc. Often the changes needed to
make these flashy colors result in a less effective thermal barrier, and sometimes lower
temperature resistance. With ceramic coatings it's best to put function first, appearance
|How Much horsepower will I gain? It's the combinations of advantages
that make ceramic coating worthwhile. Power, emissions, appearance, and reliability.
Typical power gains are around 2%, more on high powered turbocharged or supercharged
engines. That may not sound like a lot, but it's often enough to win the race!|
|Can you ceramic coat any exhaust manifold or header? No. At this time we
can't do Zoomies, or one piece full length headers. If your part is an unusual size or
shape please call first to discuss dimensions.|
|Can you coat other engine parts? Yes we can! pricing depends on the size
of the item. |
|What types of Metal can you ceramic coat. We can coat any type of
aluminum, steel, or cast iron. We can NOT coat Magnesium, so don't send your Alfa Romeo
GTV6 bellhousing adapter!|
|Can I have my entire exhaust system ceramic coated? I suppose you could,
but the farther back you go, the less the benefit. As a general rule, if it's in the
engine compartment it's worth ceramic coating.|
|What about combining ceramic coating with exhaust wraps or sleeves to keep the
heat in? Exhaust wraps and ceramic coating work very well together! Combined, these
two items reduce underhood heat even more. The only real drawbacks to combining these two
things are cost and appearance. The wrap tends to get dirty, and it's not something you
can just wipe off. It also sheds microfibers that cause your skin to itch if you tough it.
|Why not use exhaust wrap by itself? I generally don't recommend exhaust
wrap by itself because it traps moisture and speeds up rust and corrosion. It also causes
the manifold or header itself to run hotter, sometimes resulting in cracking or other
failures. For these reasons exhaust wrap voids the warranty on almost every header on the
|Do I need to do any special preparation before I send or bring you my manifold
for coating? You can bead blast it or you can pay us to bead blast it. We
cannot ceramic coat it unless all dirt, rust, oil, and grime is completely removed from
the manifold in prepartion for the ceramic coating. |
