Powder Coating

Im powder coating the valve covers on the mach motor and i know nothing about it, are the inside of the valve covers supposed to be coated on the inside or not. Also doing the coil plugs. Any advice or if you know any good powder coaters in the jersey area let me know.

Yeah Johnson's powder coating in Mt Laurel. I used them for a set of headers a few years back.


You don't need to get the valve covers coated on the inside no, just the outside. The coil plugs, just buy a rebuild kit for $30 if they are OEM ones. Usually just the boot and spring is bad, not the entire coil. Just did them on my Expy like this, works perfect.

COP covers are aluminum. Might as well get the Mach intake powdercoated too since its metal.


I paid like... $350 for a set of longtubes to be ceramic coated back about 5 years ago. Ceramic is more expensive and longtubes are big. Small stuff like the valve covers and COP covers I can't imagine are super expensive. They did a real good job like I said.
