It helps keep the engine much MUCH cooler and considering I live in Arizona i'll take it. Anything to help keep the engine a bit cooler or help it cool down faster after driving. Also if you do shows or anything like that the coating makes em look really really nice instead of turning gold or other colors.

As for price it is far cheaper than the Trifecta tune which many have said gives little to no hp gain either.

Maybe the engine compartment stays cooler. In the 8 years that we've been dynoing/tuning cars really haven't seen the "advertised" gains from jet hot or other ceramic coats...but you are correct that it looks better. IMO

Trifecta might not give a lot of gains on the dyno, however, it optimizes all the mods done. Also, if you have an auto, it tunes it as well, and makes the shifts much better. Not too mention, if you get the data cable, you get Vince's awesome customer service, and every time you add a mod, it can be optimized.


Trifecta vs jetcoating? Trifecta every time, lol!!

Don't get me wrong I am not bashing Trifecta. I am likely going to have it done as well. I am just saying if you are just talking horsepower gains trifecta is double the price for the same kind of gains.

Not really, as there are gains to the tune that really can't be measured. Like everything working right together and the car still being in a safe AFR. Somethings can be measured, but only at the strip, like the better shifts from the tranny tune.

Of course, the jetcoat should drop under hood temps, maybe freeing up some horsepower. Whereas Trifecta is proven, and not just in v6 Camaros, or just Camaros.

I get what you are saying, and for looks, jetcoating is sweet. Yet, dollar for dollar, I think Trifecta is the better buy, even if it is twice as much. It does do twice as much.
