Higher performance Toyota and Nissan Engines


Noordeman Diesel are now offering Ceramic coated crowns and Teflon(MoS2) coated skirts on all pistons including Diesel, Petrol, Gas, 4 stroke and 2 stroke. These pistons are available in all sizes and are machined to allow for the extra height the added ceramic crown coating adds.

The ceramic crown coating can withstand temperatures of up to 1300°C and pressures of up to 69,000 kPa (10,000 psi). This helps to keep the piston cooler and reduces friction, which stops it from softening and failing prematurely from high combustion chamber temperatures.

Reduced heat loss to the piston equates to better fuel burn rates, and increased power and fuel economy (depending on how you drive the vehicle) and a better ring seal.

The skirt coating contains Teflon and is a dry film lubricant which adds 0.025mm (0.001”) to the piston skirt diameter and can withstand temperatures of up to 600°C. It will help prevent piston scuffing in the bores in most marginal lubrication conditions.

If piston protrusion height is a problem due to head or block machining we can also offer 0.25 mm (0.010”) thick head shims to suit a large range of engines.


So basically if you want to turn you standard Toyota, Nissan diesel engine into a Hi- performance Diesel engine this is the start or what we can do. By ceramic coating your pistons you can increase your turbo boost and play with your fuel settings.

This can be done on other types of diesel engines not just Toyota & Nissan

We can also offer Ceramic coating to Cylinder head valves and Cylinder heads (combustion chamber) to reduce the amount of heat absorbed and to retain combustion chamber heat in the chamber as well as reducing the wear and creating a better long term seal

Noordeman can even help with coating your intake and exhaust manifolds in a range of finishes for more details please contact one of our helpful staff.
