Cryo gears


Don't be caught out in the cold on Cryogenics!


Seems everybody wants to get in on cryogenically hardening transmission components to give them more strength.  But don’t be too hasty to jump on that bandwagon.  If cryo hardening is done incorrectly it can actually weaken the gears and cause them to get brittle.  YIKES! One competitor flat out copied our tested  torque rating numbers. Who are you going to trust your transmission with the innovators or the copy cats? American Powertrain has been delivering our XTREME line of cryo hardened transmissions for many years now and we have a great track record for service, durability and reliability.  Only a handful of facilities understand true cryogenic hardening, the process of super cooling steel and then reheating it at a controlled rate.  Most so-called cryo hardening uses passive reheating and nets steel that is more brittle than it started out.  American Powertrain does cryo right utilizing -300°F liquid nitrogen cooling and active reheating to deliver up to a 30% increase  in component strength without affecting tolerances.  Then we go a step further with authentic, licensed REM™ Polishing of the gears and shafts, an exclusive process that fills in the microscopic abnormalities in the surface of the metal and polishes it to a mirror finish without changing the tolerances of the part.  REM™ Polishing reduces fluid pressure between gear teeth, lowers internal friction and heat and eliminates power sucking drag.  All this means more durability, less parasitic power loss and a transmission you can trust to take the punishment.  Get your Xtreme upgrade today on any TKO or Magnum, and add one of our super fast White Lightning shifters for the ultimate performance upgrade.  Trust the gold standard in upgraded transmissions, trust XTREME by American Powertrain.
