Honed Out in Charlotte NC

Get your engine components honed out in Charlotte NC to improve performance

Do you want to get the best possible performance from your engine? Getting your intake manifold honed out in Charlotte NC may be just what you’re looking for. This process can benefit all kinds of engines, from race cars to motorcycles and even personal watercraft.

How Extrude Honing Works

Getting a part honed out in Charlotte NC requires the removal of a small amount of metal from the interior surfaces. While this can be done by hand, you’d end up spending countless hours and you may not be able to reach all the interior passages of a given part. Abrasive flow machining is faster and easier. All interior surfaces can be reached and smoothed evenly. The secret to this process is a polymer media that works sort of like liquid sandpaper when passed through the part under pressure. The media is designed to keep the abrasive particles evenly distributed for even surface removal throughout the part.

Benefits for Performance

AFM ProcessWhen a part is honed out in Charlotte NC, 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 Charlotte NC?

With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Charlotte NC. 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. If you only hone out one part, make it your intake manifold as this will deliver the biggest performance gains. One part that cannot be honed out is the header; however we can put a weld bead on the outside and then smooth down the inner weld to create a better angle for you.
