Re: Ceramic Coating

I'd be inclined to leave it mate. You want to keep the convertor fairly warm to stop it icing up.

Re: Ceramic Coating

hmm..

my paceys were HPC coated and melted some stuff - just wiring, crap like that. im worried that these, which will be hotter, will be too close to the coolant hoses and vapour out hose.

ill find out soon i guess-hopefully get them fitted soon.

Re: Ceramic Coating

I kinda have to agree with mongrelEB.. it might be a problem with wires and hoses, but shouldn't be with the converter..

Re: Ceramic Coating

I never had a problem with my Paceys, no coating, until the wire retainer broke and the loom fell on them
But I've got an EF loom now so it doesn't matter

In all seriousness though, I do not believe, provided the wiring/hoses are tied up properly, that you will have any issues.

Re: Ceramic Coating

galapogos01..
Do you have a six or a V8 ?
Whichever way where's your converter located ?

Re: Ceramic Coating

i have a 6. my convertor is mounted to the drivers side shock tower - exhaust side of the engine. every EF on LPG ive seen has had the convertor on this side, due to the BBM. im going to book them in for fitting this week, i think ill get a heat shield made up...

Re: Ceramic Coating

i bought some of that heat wrap the other day and suprisingly it was reasonably priced! I think it was about 20bux for a 10ftX 2" roll. A few rolls of that might get you out of trouble.

Re: Ceramic Coating
