After 500 miles? Sure. That'* about all I got before that 16 year old blonde chick pumped 87 octane behind my back and cost me a piston.

So, I'm assuming there was never any follow up to this to tell how the coating held up, etc?

The general opinion of the original poster is that this is still the way to go. The paint is still hanging in strong, and the original poster believes that it acts as an effective heat sink. He is no longer a member here, but there are a couple of members here that do run it. I believe that Billboost is one of them.

Why wouldn’t a thermal dispersant such as listed below be a cool thing (pun intended) to put on a blower? Or a transmission case, for that matter? Too bad it only comes in black…
Tech Line Thermal Dispersant, TLTD:
• Rapidly disperses heat away from a coated component
• More evenly distributes heat over a coated surface
• Aids in cooling heat sensitive parts
• Excellent for intake manifolds, brake components, oil pans etc…
• Very good chemical and corrosion resistance
• Black in color
• Cosmetically appealing
• Requires baking. Cures at 300f minimum. Must be oven baked

Part # 3401 (qt), 3408 (gal)

If I had a car, I'd give it a try. Unless it'* cost-prohibitive.

Now the interesting thing here is..that WillWren told everyone this was Kyrlon Wrinkle paint and not a special coating. Yet behind the scenes the above is his direct and unlatered posts w/o anything missing that would change any meaning. I used some Wrinkle paint to hide imperfections etc. Krylon has not been proven in any scientific way to reduce temps or anything of that sort. It also doesn't appear to hold in any heat and many guys have powdercoated, painted and coated superchargers for years w/o any noticable performance changes. Krylon will hold up decently, but it is only paint.
