Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Charlotte NC
If you are a gearhead, you are most likely already familiar with the benefits of porting intake and exhaust manifolds and other engine components to enhance fuel and air flow. But have you considered the best way to get your porting done?
Hint: it’s not hand porting.
It’s extrude hone porting in Charlotte NC.
Extrude Hone AFM’s founder actually pioneered the use of abrasive flow machining for extrude hone porting in 1974. This technique delivers many advantages over hand porting, which requires an incredible level of skill and control, is unable to reach deep into the twisting passages of a manifold or other part, and is very time consuming. Extrude hone porting in Charlotte NC, on the other hand, can reach every millimeter of all sides of any passage for fast and even surface removal.
Back in 1974, the Extrude hone porting technique was first used on a chainsaw motor. However, the benefits of the technique were quickly noticed and extrude hone porting is commonly used on parts for:
- Racing engines
- Muscle cars
- Personal watercraft
- High-performance trucks
How Extrude Hone Porting Works
In extrude hone porting, a putty-like polymer media loaded with abrasive grit is passed through the passages in a manifold under pressure from a hydraulic ram. Though the media may be almost liquid at first, when it is pushed into the part under pressure it becomes firmer, transforming into a flexible slug that conforms to the exact shape of the hole or passage and grinds away the metal. We can control the process to remove the precise amount of material required to enhance your part.
Benefits of Extrude Hone Porting in Charlotte NC
Extrude hone porting in Charlotte NC can deliver many benefits for any passage that gas or liquid will be flowing through. The most commonly ported parts are intake and exhaust manifolds, but we can also port engine heads, turbo impellers, housings and pumps, and 2 or 4 stroke cylinders.
The result of the extrude hone porting process is increased flow velocity, not flow volume. Combustion becomes more intense, encouraging:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Reduced emissions
In our experience, flow increases about 25 percent after extrude hone porting in Charlotte NC. The corresponding improvement in performance will depend on the configuration of your engine.
