Ceramic coatings on the piston top, valve top, and combustion chamber disallow heat transfer, ergo decrease the detonation.
Nick at Taliferro told me that there are customer street cars that have a warm up delay as the piston top ceramics work so well in expelling heat from the surrounding materials. Check out the tops of the pistons on Nick's website, there are some gold ones, those are ceramic coated by the piston manufacturer as I recall.
We've studied up on this, it's not that it is something new, I'm running +1800 degrees F EGT and it's time to figure out a way to get that under control. Well, control of combustion heat....hmmmm.....another illusion of control.
