Yes we have used a variety of different coating's over the year's. At this moment my own personal engine (391ci all aluminum SB2.2) has coated piston's. The head is ceramic coated, and the skirt's have the anti friction coating. These are JE's FSR forging's (slipper skirt 393 grams). Swain Tech in New York did the coating's. JE is also offering a variety of coating's done in house now as well, which we have been using here lately.

i just had all of my solid lifter cams coated with an oil absorbing coating(i think). the company that did it said they had never had one of their coated cams go flat. the cost was only $35 per camshaft.

custom coatings in tulsa, ok did the coating.
