Details

REM's ISF® Process significantly reduces wear up to 95%, reduces contact fatigue and reduces lubrication requirements. Finished gear sets have a significant friction reduction that sheds oil faster and offers quicker break-in. Treating gears with this process removes the microscopic peaks in the machined gear surfaces, resulting in a final Ra of 4-6 µin. Quite literally, this means the surface finish is "as smooth as glass", which also typically measures about 4 µin.

A Parasitic Friction Comparison Study done by REM on a T101 Transmission 3rd Gear showed a Six Horsepower gain over a standard untreated gear. The test was conducted using UNICAL 90W gear oil preheated to 180° F. It's very likely you'll see even more HP gain with rear end gears due to their larger friction area.

Service Q & A

  • What rear end oil should I run?
    There are rumors that REM Finishes don't hold an oil film, however this is not the case. The REM ISF process results in a non-directional (Isotropic) texture that increases bearing ratio and enhances lubricant retention on the gear face. You may use any gear oil you wish for your application.

  • How much will this help lower ET's?
    This will depend on the vehicle, but it's highly likely you will see a measurable improvement in your ET's.

  • What's the turn around time to have this done?
    Typical REM Finishing lead times are a week to 10 days in most situations.

  • When will I be billed?
    An Innovators West employee will contact you for billing on your Credit Card (Amex/Visa/MC) when the parts are ready to ship.
