Plasma sprayed bores are more common on auto motors.  I think k Ford is using this process in the newest mustangs...

If you work with the different kinds, it is easy to tell them apart.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

NWP started with chrome on their BB and went to nikasil. IMO must be a reason for it.   mako saying they are sticking with chrome to me is just cost savings to them which = better profits. All JMO and thoughts.
