Extrude Hone Porting in Chicago IL

Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Chicago IL

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 porting by hand.

It’s extrude hone porting in Chicago IL.

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. We personally demonstrated this technology to Ford in 1992 and today it is used to enhance some of their top models. Extrude hone porting is also commonly used on parts for:

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

How Extrude Hone Porting Works

Whereas hand porting can only improve surfaces that hand tools can reach, extrude hone porting in Chicago IL can improve the entire passageway and carries no risk of ripples or unevenness. Extrude hone porting uses an abrasive-laden polymer that can conform to the exact dimensions of the passage. 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 evenly contacts every surface of the hole or passage and grinds away the metal. Our polymer media is designed to allow the abrasive grit to recirculate constantly, so that fresh abrasive is always contacting the surfaces being honed. 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 Chicago IL

AFM ProcessAFM ProcessAny passage that fuel or air flows through can benefit from extrude hone porting in Chicago IL. 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.

This process does not alter flow volume, but it does improve flow velocity. Fuel is burned more efficiently and exhaust is evacuated more completely. The result is:

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

The exact benefits you’ll see in each of these areas after extrude hone porting in Chicago IL depends on how your engine is configured. Typically, honing the intake manifold results in a 25 percent increase in flow.
