Engine Performance Improvement
A professional racing team using a 3.6L Porsche engine was experiencing less than desired engine performance and higher than desired operating temperatures. They determined to reduce friction within the system by using a dry lubricant coating. The coating needed to perform under the following conditions.
- Extremely high operating temperatures
- Tight tolerances of existing design (no re-design)
- Presence of essential engine
The engine was tested with a dynamometer and disassembled. The crankshaft, journal & main bearings, timing chain, rods, wrist pins, rings, piston skirts and valve assemblies were coated with Dicronite . After reassembly, the engine was tested again with the valve assemblies.
