How much heat is generated is sort of an open ended question... fuel consumed, BTU released, etc...
For normal EM purposes, EGT may be a more applicable way to look at it. EGTs under boost should float around 1250F. If you're running a screamer, you could hit 1450F. 15psi in a WX, however, and I'd count on the lower figure being more representative.
However... if you're looking for "bang for the buck"... I wouldn't be looking at ceramic coating. Your money would be better spent elsewhere.

I'm in the process of wanting to ceramic coat various parts of the exhaust and
intake sides and wanted to see if anyone had any rough ideas about how much heat
is generated at max boost on a slightly modded WX.
Im running in theory about 15psi (what was original stock setup, just chipped),
when done I will be running I hope about the same boost, but with a larger
intercooler and K24/26 hybrid for better low end boost and more efficient turbo
from what I have read, 2000 degree is the max most of the good ceramic coatings
can handle. 1300 on the low side for silver and shiny coats...and some places
will not coat the inside of the manifold due to possible flaking??
I do not intend to replace the manifold with a header as then I would have to do
WAY more stuff like EFI etc...but am open to other options...I know there is a 2
pc manifold but peeps seem to want about $4-500 for them and from reading the
info on this list...for the small gain, prob not worth it.
Thanks for any help in advance?
