Honed Out in Boston MA

Get your engine components honed out in Boston MA to improve performance

Even the best manufacturing process can leave behind tiny imperfections in the interior surfaces of your engine parts. Getting your parts honed out in Boston MA will remove these imperfections and enhance performance.

How Extrude Honing Works

Getting a part honed out in Boston MA requires the removal of a small amount of metal from the interior surfaces. While it is possible to hone by hand, this requires great skill and lots of time. And even the most expert technician won’t be able to reach around the curves of all the interior passages. Abrasive flow machining is faster and easier. All interior surfaces can be reached and smoothed evenly. This is made possible through the use of a specially formulated polymer media that, when pressurized, conforms to the shape of the interior passages and abrades them on all sides. Because the media allows the abrasive particles to recirculate, there is always fresh abrasive at the surface and every millimeter of the passage will undergo consistent and controllable removal.

Benefits for Performance

AFM ProcessWhen a part is honed out in Boston MA, air and fuel can flow better through the interior passages, giving you better volumetric efficiency and:

  • Increased horsepower
  • More thrust
  • More torque
  • Better fuel efficiency
  • Lower emissions

What Kind of Parts Can Be Honed Out in Boston MA?

With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Boston MA. We can vary the abrasive media depending on the type of metal in the part--for example, a lighter abrasive for aluminum and a heavier one for cast iron. We frequently hone intake manifolds, as well as exhaust manifolds when there is no aftermarket alternative available. While headers contain interior welds that can disrupt flow, you can’t just hone them out. An exterior weld must be added first to ensure the strength and integrity of the part.

Why Choose Extrude Hone

Extrude Hone helped to pioneer the abrasive flow machining process for automotive applications over 30 years ago. In fact, we actually introduced Ford to this process in 1992 and today they use it to enhance some of their top models. We understand the science behind the process in detail, meaning we can deliver superior results with the size of the abrasive particles, type of polymer media, the pressure level, and the tooling holding your part customized to your specific needs. Our skill is particularly important when you want flow matched parts, since parts cannot be honed together.
