I found many references to some spray on coatings. Most of these are for exhaust systems. They are all some type of metal oxide. HMM real original explanation. I guess I need to do a patent search to see if I can dig anything up.

One site mentioned coating fo piston tops, valves and valve springs with a heat resistant coating. They claimed 8% gain in fuel efficiency and 5% HP. I guess I would be more interested in wear and longevity figures.
