Extrude Hone Porting in Chatsworth CA

Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Chatsworth CA

If you know a lot about cars, you probably already know that parts like intake and exhaust manifolds are seldom optimized for the best fuel and air flow in your average vehicle--instead, these parts must be ported. But can you name the number one method for porting?

Hint: it’s not porting by hand.

It’s extrude hone porting in Chatsworth CA.

AFM ProcessAlso sometimes called PowerFlow, the extrude hone porting process was invented by one of our company’s founders in 1974. The first engine improved by porting was actually a chainsaw, but the benefits of the process were quickly adapted to all kinds of engines. Today it’s used by OEMs like Cadillac and Ford on their top selling models, and it is also being used by hobbyists on:

  • Racing engines
  • Muscle cars
  • Motorcycles
  • Personal watercraft
  • High-performance trucks

How Extrude Hone Porting Works

One of the biggest limitations of hand porting--besides the incredible level of skill and control that is required to abrade the metal evenly--is that it can’t reach deep into the twisting passages of a manifold or other part. Extrude hone porting in Chatsworth CA, on the other hand, can reach every millimeter of all sides of any passage. This is possible because extrude hone porting uses an abrasive-laden polymer that can conform to the exact dimensions of the passage. As the polymer runs through the part, it becomes a flexible slug that sands away material evenly on all sides. The process can be controlled with a high degree of precision to ensure that the porting gets done to the exact specs you have calculated will enhance your engine.

Benefits of Extrude Hone Porting in Chatsworth CA

AFM ProcessAFM ProcessExtrude hone porting in Chatsworth CA can deliver many benefits for any passage that gas or liquid will be flowing through. The biggest improvements in engine performance are seen from porting the manifolds, but porting can also improve engine heads, turbo impellers, housings and pumps, and 2 or 4 stroke cylinders.

After extrude hone porting, parts have a freer flow with greater velocity. Combustion becomes more intense, encouraging:

  • Increased horsepower
  • More thrust
  • More torque
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Reduced emissions

Typically, extrude hone porting in Chatsworth CA on a manifold increases flow up to 25 percent. The amount of improvement you see in your engine performance will depend on its condition and configuration.
