|Cryogenic Thermal Cycling|
With this state of the art thermal cycling process your engine, and its components, will be able will perform to the peak of its ability. This treatment strengthen the structural integrity of the metal which increases its durability and reduces wear and vibration. Vibration from moving parts will rob the engine of horsepower and torque. This phenomena can also result in catastrophic engine failure over time. Cryogenic thermal cycling significantly reduces or eliminates high frequency harmonic vibrations in metal components under stress loads. Treated components have shown an overall increase in life expectancy as high as 600%. Studies have also shown a drastic reduction in micro cracking in vital components. Cryo-treatment does not make the component more brittle or change its physical characteristics in any way. For more information visit this URL to read an article titled:

Cryogenic treatment was originally developed by NASA for use on rocket components. It was later enhanced and is now used by Nascar, Le Mans, INDY, IRL, CART, SCCA, NHRA, LEGENDS, AMA, WERA, ADBA, AHDRA, WKA, IKA & NKA teams around the world with tremendous results. Our cryogenic thermal cycling process, although derived from conventional Deep Cryogenic Processing, has been developed over the last 10 years and has proven to be far more effective than conventional Cryogenics. Our precise computer controlled cryo chamber can raise and lower the temperature from .1 degree to 10 degrees per minute operating at temperatures ranging from +400 degrees to -320 degrees.
This process is not a surface treatment. It treats 100% of the component making it stronger on a molecular level. As a result, it is stronger and dramatically reduces wear on vital components. This process endures for the life of the component rather than ceasing to be effective after the surface is worn or otherwise damaged.
Advantages of Cryogenic Tempering:
Strengthens structural integrity (reduces cracking or breaking under stress), reduces harmonic vibration, reduces friction, abrasive wear resistant
releases internal residual stresses, increased durability and life more importantly it does not change size or hardness of metal.
Parts That Would Benefit from Cryogenic Tempering:
Turbos, Crank Shafts, Cam Shafts, Valves & Valve Springs, Rocker Arms, Push Rods, Engine Blocks, Pistons and Rings, Connecting Rods,
Bearings, Brake Rotors, Brake Pads, Transmissions, and Cylinder Heads
As a result of cryo-treatment, you will obtain more horsepower with existing modifications, in addition to extending the life of the engine. Also, you will experience fewer breakdowns. Overall, the performance of your engine will be greatly enhanced making it more consistent and dependable.
How To Prepare For Cryogenic Treatment:
Disassemble and clean all parts to be treated.
Be sure all parts are in good working order.
Replace all worn or damaged parts before treating.
Do any machine work necessary.
Do not include seals, gaskets, or gasket making adhesives.
Do not send assemblies with tightened or torqued hardware. If block was treated, perform final hone.
It is good practice to re-check tolerances.
Follow normal or recommended break-in procedures.
You may experience a slightly longer break-in period.
