WPC Treatmeant for my rb26 build

Recommended Posts

pretty straight forward i haven't heard a bad thing about this product yet so really I'm looking for anyone that thinks wpc treating my rb26 or any engine build is a waste of time...from what i see which is only online content it is a god saver for metal and makes engines last at least 50 percent longer...looking for only the top dogs to put up some info here nothing shady/no newbs please!

From what I recall, This was developed by a couple of companies in the Fuji Heavy Industries Group. Its a refinement of shot peening, using smaller projectiles(media) at much higher speeds. Its been around for years and highly regarded particularly in Trumpland. Only ever heard one naysayer, who said " but its a sacrificial process"  Where its more like a microscopic forging and heat treatment, with rapid heat rise and cool at the impact points.

yeah i researched the process pretty intense. i think its well worth it im gunna give it a shot. about 1000 bucks to do the entire rotating assembly plus shipping. seems to me that sa great way to save bearings, etc from the rb's crank walk issues. ive got a prp brace and with, the wpc i hope to pull my new engine down after 2 years and be able to confirm the results.

nismo bearings. im still trying to figure out which coating is on the bearings cause they may not accept the the wpc properly. the new king bearings have a coating on them that are pretty good but im staying, my engine was line bored and crank machined a bit so will have to go one size over Nismo bearing on the rods and mains. but yeah wpc the whole rest of the engine pretty much. will post pics and lots of success or not success videos. the process was much cheaper than i thought. its simple less friction more power more smiles.
