RE: EM JetHot Coatings
Manifold would retain heat if JetHot were applied to outside, but would
be insulated from exhaust heat if coated on inside, which I believe is
their intent. This would reduce the heat-soak of the exhaust manifold,
which can only be good, can it not?

I thought about doing this to my exhaust manifold. I ended
doing it due to concerns with excessive heat. JetHot
cermic coatings are used to insulate parts so they will
heat? I would be concerned about heat soaking the turbo and
the manifold was insulated? What's your theory?
I am planning on fabricating heat shields to fit between
the inlet and
exhaust manifolds and to try and isolate the hot and cold
sides of the
turbo. May even cut some holes in the bonnet.
