This is an after-market High-Temperature Ceramic Coated Intake/Exhaust Manifold for an F-162 or F-163 Continental 4-cylinder motor.
Advantages to Ceramic Coated manifolds are 1) Corrosion protection. The manifold will live longer as well as look nicer. and 2) Thermal protection. The coating is a thermal barrier, thus keeping heat within the exhaust manifold or header.There are a number of benefits for this. First, by keeping heat within the exhaust manifold, you’re going to accelerate the exhaust gas velocity which reduces back pressure and reduces fuel contamination due to reversion. This is a performance benefit. Second, you’ll reduce the surface temperature of the manifold.
We suggest using an anti-seize compound when installing the exhaust pipe.
