Cryo Treating stock forged rods

With all the advancements in tuning from way back when Greg tried this, I wonder if we could squeeze a few more ponies out of the stock rods with cryo treatment and updated tuning? I'm looking for an hp goal of 450-500 running hybrids and probably an H2E. I know there are alot of members running this hp range without cryo treatment but it was just a thought.

cryo treatment can only help so much. 450-500 on PMRs cryoed or not is playing with fire

Re: Cryo Treating stock forged rods

I ran 470+ on just forged so I imagine the Cryo would just add a level of insurance.

Re: Cryo Treating stock forged rods

A girdle, cryo'd block and cryo'd rods should be a good combination for 500-550 reliably.

No, the motor is still in the truck. I am planning a rod swap soon in the future and posted this more as a discussion question.

I worded this wrong, I wanted reopen this up for discussion because I don't believe anyone on the forums have cryo'd stock rods since Greg.

Re: Cryo Treating stock forged rods

WOP used to cryo rods and other parts, and they held up pretty good on their race truck.........I think they even had compunds on it at the time. Give them a call and talk to Zane or Casey they should have plenty of info for ya.
