actually freezing parts is not a new thing, CTM deep freezes their U-joints so that the molecules in the steel stack tighter, and in formation. the result is a VERY STRONG u-joint

Arent most tanks underground?

It stays about 55 deg F year round when you are 4 feet deep or more.

Also, the nozzle/computer/pump is supposed to compensate for the temp I thought?

Yeah. I have also seen rotors that have been cryoed.

Croyed gun barrel improves harmonics and improves accuracy...pretty expensive to do that though. Wonder how much it would cost to do a whole engine lol.

I think I'd like to see a real study done by scientists. A local news report just doesn't cut it for me.

If this really worked, then the big 3 should have been all over it to keep up with government mandated fuel effiency requirements.
