I had a few parts powdercoated at www.trgcoating.com (he's done MANY parts on my 300zx TT engine for me) for the MX6 because I was replacing the valve cover gasket, 60k service (tbelt, water pump, idler and tensioner pullies, tstat, etc.), and cap/rotor/plugs/wires/fuelfilt/pcv/airfilt, etc..etc.. I figured after an afternoon of work and $200 or so in parts, it deserved a little special treatment.

It was a probe valve cover, and wasn't sure if I wanted to use FORD or MAZDA on the valve cover, so I had him do both.


Almost put back together... Not bad for 220k+ miles on the original engine/trans, eh? It was cleaner than I remember it being 55k ago when I changed the T belt in Feb of 04.

Thanks. I'm a detail nut, so I try not to let it get dirty, but it's far from perfect. I put anywhere from 25k to 40k miles on it per year, so I usually clean it when I change the oil/filter, etc..

I know they like to snowball, but I have another project that robs all my $$$ anyway (see sig).

The color is called "wrinkle red" at www.trgcoating.com It was like $45 for the valve cover to be done and he sands the text for free.


Here's a pict of my 300zx TT's engine about 8 months ago. The plenum is "wrinkle black" and the 4 valve covers are "wrinkle red". After the chrome and powdercoating, the rice stops there. :) Everything else is performance oriented on that car.

731hp/654tq @ 19psi on Twin HKS GT2825RS (disco potato) with supporting mods. It's a MONEY pit.

Here's a few more picts.












To keep it MX6 related, heres the MX6 too..





The SMIC's on my Z have the stock ones put back on because my larger ones are out getting new garrett cores instead of the bell cores. They are two 12x8x4" garrett core IC's..
