Titanium exhaust will be here soon, my Y pipe is done. Diffuser filler too..
Buying some 6000K low beam HIDs from Diode Dynamics as well.

***Just added 8ml of CERMA Nano to the engine. Treat those main bearings !!!!

Is CERMA Nano anything like Liqui Moly's CERA TEC?

CERMA is patented. What you mention is a bastardized copy.
CERMA is made in Texas, Moly is a european union theft of intellectual property company.
I'm sure the stuff works, but it is not the original. I know it also does not have the carbon guard chems either.

Wouldnt you rather give your money to an American inventor which you can speak to directly, or some sissy in Bruge Brussels that wouldnt or couldnt give you the time of day.

I dont know the Ceratec details. CERMA has two distinct and specialized formulas for ferrous and non ferrous applications. It is not likely that one stop does all.

CERMA engine treatment is for ferrous.
CERMA nano is made for non ferrous. Specifically bushing turbos like the 2.0T has. The other great use is for all main bearings which are not ferrous.

I was introduced to CERMA by a marine engine specialist. The stuff has been in my 2009 Yamaha twin engine jetboat eversince it hit the water. 11 years later and over 500 hours on the engines she runs like new. I do wake surfing, so that means the motors are running 7-9K rpm hauling 3 to 4,000 lbs of water in ballast. Alll day long...........

My super VT had CERMA everything. It was a 32 psi 1.6 T with stock innards. Mine was the only super turbo with stock innards that didnt blow sky high. (Of course I was running pure meth and other items taught to me by Torkme).

So I am the poster boy for CERMA, it F--cking works.

I have CERMA:

Special formula treatment made by the inventor for my differential. This in addition to the gear oil.
Trans fluids. The shiit is amazing. the 8AT loves this stuff. Mine runs at 98 - 122 F
Power steering fluid.
Obviously the oils and the engine and bearing treaments.
My fuel mix uses CERMA fuel treatment and their 2 stroke oil in the add packs to all my solvent accelerators.

Wow I had no idea. I was just running cera tech as an extra protection for my bearings. I’ll have to check out cerma. I’m at 55k miles on my GDI and already have glittery oil with full synthetic oil changes every 2k miles since I bought it at 36k. The more research I have done the more I realize what I have been using is much more conducive to greater lspi. I’ve been using Castrol edge professional 5w30 diesel oil. Now I’m looking for something that will work in my favor with the GDI

Ok if anything your ceratec has tried to copy the CERMA engine treatment. This covers only ferrous items, not your non ferrous main bearings.
If you want to protect your bearings you need to get CERMA NANO. You add only a quarter ounce, thats how powerful this sh-it is. But it is a very specialized formulation. Not ceratec.
Cerma oils are as good as it gets to fight LSPIfrom happening.

Oh and not that I give a crap, but all CERMA products are tested, approved and proven to reduce harmful engine emissions by:
1. The EPA
2. The Canadian socialist tree hugging equivalent.

So anyone here that intimates that this is some kind of snake oil scam is a dumbass mal-informed tweeb.

Do you know if they sell cerma in stores? I just saw a bunch of lubricity tests on YouTube involving cerma and I’m totally sold. AND their pricing is super competitive. Thank you for introducing me to this! So you are saying I should run Their nano treatment for my 3.8 GDI and not their STM-3 engine supplement?

No, online only. cermastore.
All engines must be:

Fully treated with CERMA engine treatment mixed in any old oil for at least 1500 miles.
That oil is dumped, and you switch to full CERMA oil.
The Nano can be used to treat your main bearings ( 1/4 ounce) after that, or if you are a 2.0T with a bushing turbo you add the whole bottle.

Since you have used ceratec I would defer you to speak with the inventor John Murray. He is the tech support.

Woops, pic loader is touchy. At least it works.

Took her out today, the sun made a bit of an appearance. Its been about a week since she was out. The pic is at Costco, the sun is dancing off the chameleon, look at all the colors.


PS Fedex is doing a Sunday delivery of my Tomei exhaust,....signature definitely required.

Titanium pipe section is being welded as we speak. So my contact here refferred me to a guy in Avon IN. Theres not many people who can actually weld titanium. The CSR Y pipe section fit perfectly up to the T kits flanging, which was jigged from oem patterning. The part cost 145.00 delivered.

The Tomei kit is incredibly high quality. The whole thing weighs like 14 lbs. The stuff it replaced is like 44 lbs.

But the SOUND that titanium makes is unmistakeable. I can't wait. I got the rear diffuser filler too, but it will have to wait for warmer weather for me to paint/coat it like the rest of the rear.

So yeah it took one set of cuts, marks on the two sections to correctly clock the flange and presto !

According to Tomei plus 40 whp..........thats for a 2.0T ! Just think what my huge ass 62/66 bb turbo with unlimited tune will push. I dont really care hp out the butt here anyway.

*****Also there was method to this madness. We got the entire IM/riser/lower IM ported and polished. So we can see her breathe better. Now we have made sure she can exhale better,...............two 3 inch pipes into a 4.5 straight monster with no bends,(or very slightly, one of them less than 18 degrees or so). Straight out.

Damm
So I show up just before the dude who welding it shop closes. Apparently he had blown out his electrode tip on his welder. I'm in my SUV waiting,....he comes out of his shop with the finished product, beautiful weld. He asks me,...what doyou have this going on ?" I do a lot of commercial stuff for aviation, but I haven't welded titanium parts privately for about two years now".
So I proceeded to show him pics of the T-GEN. After viewing several he says, dude this is on the house. Sorry for the delay.........I was like wow ! You sure ! (I know the rod alone was probably 50.00 worth), Not to mention his expert time.

He says, "I'm just happy to be part of the build, nice car".

Score !!!😊

The sun was out again, the system is on. I
75208
disconnected/connected my batt . OMFG ! The AFR/butt dyno was good with the porting and polishing, now with a bigger more direct exhaust, together- lordy lordy.

So we all know our cars, so when something really makes gains its obvious. This friggin car now will just break its rear at the slightest over application of throttle. The power/torque from 2500 to 4000 is just nuts. Remember I have some huge ass rubber back there............

Another color look in the sun.
So the new exhaust is nuts,....the turbo spool is off the charts. Its so f--king cool.
I have the diffuser filler, but I have to wait for warmer weather to paint it before she goes on.


When I was out there filming, within 2 minutes all the lil buddies within earshot come running outside to see their favorite car !

😈🤘

So the big lesson for me with these new additions is respect for the car. You know dudes on youtube, all the asshats with Lambo s, Ferrarri s, and Hellcats that end up in ditches or into light poles.

So yeah, under 50 F, or any kind of water on the road and I'm the "Dont mess with my discount !" kind of driver. Above that, or dry conditions, stand the F--k by !

Precipitous change...........

Now that everything has "normalized" and the ECM has had time to adjust, the increase in capacities are obvious and have many prominent quantifiable, measurable manifestations.

warm idle AFR before IM work : 14.7
warm idle AFR after IM work : 15.0
warm idle after IM and larger exhaust : 15.6

The leaning out makes so much more power, although any throttle you can see the car add the fuel. I've found the WOT sweet spot. My six meth injectors give me the ability to trim her in. Right now I have her running 11.4 for safety.
Today this was for good cause. Every increase breeds another increase down the chain.
Same fueling,....the additional meth, the same boost T adjustment. (Not the same results). It was in the low 50's today, so not hyper cool air,......I saw 10.5 psi boost, and I felt it in the ass end of the car. WOW. I might have to open up the boost T a little more,....oh I almost forgot. Another "factor" could be the CERMA nano I just added. The turbo I have has steel BB's, but, the addition of a nano constituent could be ramping up the turbo spool even more.

The boost T adjustment I've had was keeping her at 7.5 psi. But that was before all the IM/exhaust and increased meth work. 3.5 psi increase, wooah.

So all this extra boost must've fried my Prosport EVO boost gauges sending unit LOL. It started actin funny,...I disconnected/re-connected. It worked for a bit, then whacked out again. I just ordered a new sending unit from them. Two years and aaaargh. Oh well,....I learned this with the Snow performance methanol solenoids as well, they only last a few years then kaput.

From the inventor of CERMA

So talked at length with John Murrray the inventor of CERMA today.
According to him, Ceratec has no similarity whatsoever to CERMA in any way. It is not a bastardized copy, but just an oil additive based on old technology and additives. It uses suspended Molybdenum, loads of zinc, a small amount of silicon.So its just about the same as the old ZDDP. It has solids according to him. It still uses old detergent technolgy as well. There is nothing ceramic related, and the name is misleading. So its CRAAAAP. F-cking europeans.

So Jnasty, if you have used this it in now way effects the way you need to CERMA treat your vehicle. You should do the full treatment cycle.

CERMA s effects.

So here is what a fully treated, ran in, CERMA oil then CERMAX oil is like fully warm at idle. Look at that vacuum. -26hg. As yu know a super strong vac means ultimate compression. Show me another non CERMA genesis with a idle vac like that,...NOT !
(Yep, the AFR is lean,.....idle with ported IM and new monster exhaust).
