"Flame-Spray will use its patented and award winning plasma-transferred wire arc (PTWA) technology. The process involves accelerating a fine mist of molten steel at high speed onto a prepared surface and then honing that surface into a piston-ready cylinder bore. The technology, which is used on high performance sports cars such as the Mustang GT500 and the Nissan GT/R, improves heat transfer and reduces friction. For Elio Motors, it is projected to boost engine performance by 10 percent, while reducing engine weight, helping Elio Motors achieve its 84 miles per gallon target."
