    the only thing that I can think of is because the internals are alot stronger, he can run his car EXTREMLY lean thus saving gas.

    Why him specifically? There's more than a few places that do it.

    Cryo engine treatments have been around for more than 12 years now. And when you do the freeze, it will do just what the article says. Armed with that you can understand how cylinder walls, pistons and valves won't stretch (as much, if at all) anymore, tolerances remain tight and like Asmall said - capable of running really lean conditions or even some alternative fuels (Like water injection on a gas engine... it can happen if the seals are good)

    Rotary guys like cryo treating - The size of the motor allows it to be cheaper to actually perform, and at the same time the apex (Not seals, but the apex) doesn't stretch so far in high RPMs.

    wow, its only $550 for them to treat the engine and transmission. I wonder if that price includes taking it apart and putting it back together again.



    edit: nm, it has to be sent already dissassembled. still, not a bad price.

    That's the only way. Just treating your parts and throwing them back in isn't going to change your gas mileage one bit.
