Anyone had it done to engine parts?
I have seen some fabulous results on brake parts, and local roundy round racers highly receommend it. I am considering getting my rods, and valve springs done at least, any thoughts?

Fast, Reliable, Cheap.... Pick any TWO of these words.

I havn't tried this process myself but have talked to a number of these processors at trade shows. I also have read up on the process in Machine tool magazines, thats where it developed beyond the aerospace industry. Everything I've read has been positive but the bottom line is do I have personal knowledge of any improvemnts? That I don't have. I will be using the process on a 347 stroker I will be building in the near future. The claim for longer life for components will take quite a while for me to prove since the current engine has lasted for about a dozen road races without problems.

I have mixed emotions on this process at this time. I have also spoken with many engine builders who have tried the process and some have seen no improvement, yet others have complained of brittleness. Most were positive about the theory. I too will try to get some parts done over the winter. I don't know if I would trust the crankshaft of MM to it yet or not. Alex
