Re: Shot Peening rods

at 550 and above i would look into aftermarket rods..maybe not depending on who is doing your tuning and if they were tweeked or live tuned etc vs canned tunes.
Don't think just because they are from dp, gear head, tw, swamps etc that they are custom.
they all use base templates and thus are canned tunes, just a much better can.
spend the extra coin and have them calibrate it for your mods, even better spend even more coin and get it live tuned on a dyno and street for the best.

but to me seems like at 1400$ i would want something better then pimped out forged rods.
since your going to have to install or pay even more to install them.

Re: Shot Peening rods

Wouldn't WOP's cryno'd factory forged rods be the way to go for 500-525hp?

Re: Shot Peening rods

I believe billet rods are always the way to go if you're going through the trouble of building a motor. But if the funds just aren't there, the cryo process can definitley increase the strength of your factory pieces.

Re: Shot Peening rods

Think of it this way
If your mom buys a can of chili and ads to it 3 spices and some chives it tases better and becomes her recipe...looks and tastes way better but wonlt win the ribbon at the fair.

She goes out starts from scratch tastes it and seasons it to perfection whe have a big ribbon.


Ie I tell bill, jodi,dave etc I have a 2002 with intake ehaust guages . Minime injectors
I get a nice chip.

I tell them I have hypermax rods, so you can play with the tables more, I get customised tunes, and prob a slightly bigger bill.

I tell them throw it on the dyno then tune it...I get the ribbon

Re: Shot Peening rods

Another way to look at it is
Each truck is different even in the same year similar mods... some take it some don't

How many pmr trucks would last a year with kainers old mods and tunes..(rip)
How long did his ttuck run at those levels...his was made mutant material under a full moon to be sure...but I am sure good tunes helped it along.

and if iirc he was getting new tunes for it after some more mods when it let go, had he had the tunes it may or may not have lived.

Re: Shot Peening rods

What size nozzles was kainers running on his injectors? I know he used a few different sets, but does anyone know?

Re: Shot Peening rods

After cryo the parts should be tempered again. Any retained austenite that is changed to martensite will be hard and brittle. Tempering will change the martensite to hard and tough.

Re: Shot Peening rods

Correct. Tempering is part of the cryogenics process, which is also done here in-house.
