    Yeah, thats what i'm finding. the small cost savings is probably not worth one of the main pieces of hardware looking lousy and maybe at best subpar. I'm afraid there are too many things to get just right to really look good.

    I know i need to pull all of the internals for P.C. but what about the bowl oil? Is it enough to just drain it or should some sort flush be run through it since its going into the oven? also i want to powder coat the intake. I know to leave the flange where the epoxy is applied bare. but can the bottom entire bottom done. what about the intake channel?

    contact Jeff @ Embee, he can tell you exactly what you need to do.

    Those home kits i've heard work pretty good. The thing about a pump though is that i guess they out gas alot of crap when heated. There is a technique to getting them to look good. I used a local PC shop the first time, warned them about out gassing and they acted like they knew what they where doing and could handle it. When i got the parts back the bowl looked good from afar but up close you could see all the pin holes. The second time around i had Embee do it, they did a nice job.

    I think I'm going with a local place with a pretty good reputation, but not specifically about coating a pump. I know they have done them before but have not seen the work. Embee is just not practical for me cost wise as i would be shipping it along with some other parts from NM so cost would go up quite a bit. I think i'll give jeff a call there though to see if he would be willing to hook me up with some info specifically about PC'ing pumps so i can ask my local guy about their process. thanks for the advice.

    ya Embee in general is not cheap, then the cost of shipping a pump... It will be expensive. Embee is not the only place that can do it and do a good job, just find a good shop thats not too far from you that does some higher ends stuff.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    I'm going matte black on the pump. So if it's not perfect it shouldn't show as bad. I've got a few options here in town and have gotten some good advice so i'll be sure to try and ask the right questions before i pull the trigger. Plus i need to try to save a little money on this end so i can get my headers ceramic coated black. I would love to send it to Embee but freight would cost a ton.

    well good luck, just hope you don't have to pay twice for it.nothing worse than doing it twice. By the way they can do your headers also. They just do great work and I have had to do things twice and learned my lesson by taking advice from those that also have learned from experience....
