Is Cryo treatment good for a TKO600?
I talked to Paul @ Liberty about a faceplated TKO600 and he mentioned we should do Thermal Stabilization,Shotpeening and then consider Cryo treating the gears and Surface enhancement (which I think is like polishing the gears) I've done searchs without a clearcut answer or at what power level it is beneficial. I have a friend that runs Astro A5's and he said they use a 9310 gearset and they experimented with Cryo, but it made the teeth brittle and they found that the Cryo'd gears broke before the untreated ones. I don't know what material the TKO gears are, but with a 550 HP 363-hopefully mid 10's, is Cryo treatment something we should consider or are the TKO gears plenty strong without it? I think Paul brought it up due to the faceplating putting more shock to the gears during shifts. Are you guys running stock TKO gears with good results or did you go with the Cryo stuff? Let me know what you think of it, good or bad! Any thought on the Thermal Stabilazation, shotpeenig and surface enhancement is appreciated as well. Which ones should we do? Thanks
