Abradable Powder Coatings™ have their origins in jet engine turbines, and as a result of our developing a powder that made the process very economical, APC™ is now in millions of cars on the road today. This brief overview describes how APC™ works to safely reduce clearance, increase efficiency and results in a permanent geometric improvement of each coated part. Coated parts can be installed "as sprayed", with no post-machining required and no change to the base metal dimensions.

In todays video Jay goes over Abradable coating on pistons. What they are, and how you can benefit from them in your engine. Abradable coating is a coating that is applied to a component to tighten its operating clearance while offering protection from metal to metal contact.
This coating has excellent conformability, and have been used in the aircraft industry for over 50 years. You can also find these on turbochargers, superchargers, oil pumps, and pistons skirts. If you enjoyed todays video, Please give it a share.
WELL….. IT WASN'T A BROKEN BLOCK! - Steve Morris Engines
CYLINDER BORE HONING FOR HORSEPOWER! WATCH THIS BEFORE YOU HONE YOUR BLOCK!
Just changing the way a cylinder is honed can impact the performance of the engine. The surface finish of the bore plays a critical role in how well the piston ring seals.
In this video, "Dyno" Don MacAskill and Lake Speed Jr. dyno test the effects of an extreme plateau hone versus a conventional plateau finish. By adding more Rvk (valley depth that retains more oil on the cylinder wall) without making the surface rougher, the piston ring sees better lubrication and less friction. Because the motor oil acts as the gasket between the piston, the rings and the cylinder bore, retaining more oil on the cylinder wall increases the sealing effect of the oil.
The detailed surface finish values of the extreme plateau hone are a Rpk of 10 micro inches, a Rk of 44 micro inches and a Rvk of 72 micro inches.
ENGINE PERFORMANCE EXPO 2023 - DAY 2
Engine Performance Expo, Day 2 (01/14/23). Lake Speed, Jr. from Total Seal Piston Rings is joined by "Dyno Don" McAskill from Shaver Specialties to discuss the Line2Line abradable skirt coating

DYNO TEST: ELECTRIC TURBO + METHANOL INJECTION + COATED VOLUTE
Ever since Cleetus Mcfarland tested electric turbos the question remained - can electric turbos support more than 200hp? And does AEM methanol injection work? How much horsepower does it add? What if you don't tune for it? Does Line 2 Line's volute coating add power? We tested both, along with a new torque converter on the world's most powerful electric turbo car - the LTD with the Sledgehammer!
TURBO COATING = MORE HORSEPOWER: DYNO DATA DEEP DIVE
Does Line 2 Line's turbo volute coating add horsepower? Let's take an in depth look at the data - dyno graphs, EFI datalogs and even ESC datalogs from out Sledgehammer electric turbo.
