Re: Pre Mod Preparation (coolbob37)

To wrap the downpipe will keep the heat in and breakdown the pipe earlier than should be. Though this is a slow process and wrap can get expensive depending how much you need. Jet hot coating is a good idea but also $$. Any good downpipe should be made of a good materials like stainless. I bought some 2000 deg paint and coated my downpipe as preventative measure. If you have the dough get it jet hot coated looks awesome and will last forever. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> Hope this was helpful.

Get a ceramic coating... You won't regret it... I would say from a good shop $100.00 max ! It will increase flow properties, help the R run better and your DP will last longer than the caR... I am paying IPD to send it out to be coated and am having my EST catback sent to be coated right now as well, that though I know will be more than a $100.00 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> but it will be awesome. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Pre Mod Preparation (kmg_S60R)

it sounds good the more i read about it........<p><A HREF="http://www.classiccoatings.com/ceramic.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.classiccoatings.com/ceramic.html</A><p>however, i would like to see some flow rate test results to confirm this <p>for heat protection (keeping engine and air cooler) it seems like a good idea....deterioration....im not so sure about that (dp and exhaust are all stainless steel)......and would that be inside and outsides or just the outside?

Re: (adykes)

No idea on IPD, just have the Phuz. I like it.<p>Cats and dimensions cant really be that different. minor differences on flange, welds, and hangar I'm sure, but nothing that will make any big impact. <p>I think that a 3" DP will probably be the same across the board. Exhausts are another story, though.
