just some extra info,
I normally use piston skirt coatings that retain the oil film better and heavily coat parts with MOLY SPRAY during assembly and polish the combustion chamber and piston crown surfaces and smooth and round off the valve edges and pistons valve clearance knotchs. I personally have seen no big gains from piston dome and combustion chamber coatings the few times Ive tried them, and don,t personally think they are worth the extra expense on engines most of us build for street strip use.
