Revisiting episode 2 from January of 2021, Lake Speed Jr heads down to Cleveland, Georgia to see Jake Raby of Raby Enterprises and Flat 6 Innovations to talk about bore coatings and “ring seal soup”.

The guys dive into surface materials, coatings, finishes, and how it all comes together to make a piston move.

Being a Porsche guy, Jake shares with us his experiences with air-cooled cooled engines, and some of the innovative solutions he’s developed to fix those problem engines. He also details his recipe for “Ring Seal Soup,” and what he learned to do and not do along the way.
