Get your engine components honed out in Denver CO to improve performance
Whether you’re talking about a muscle car, a high-performance truck, a motorcycle, or a boat, chances are your engine passages aren’t perfectly smooth. Instead they will contain imperfections. To keep these imperfections from limiting performance, you need to get your parts honed out in Denver CO at Extrude Hone.
How Extrude Honing Works
Getting a part honed out in Denver CO involves smoothing the interior surfaces by polishing away some of the surface of the metal. 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. With abrasive flow machining, you can achieve totally consistent abrasion throughout the entire part. The secret to this process is a polymer media that works sort of like liquid sandpaper when passed through the part under pressure. 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
After getting honed out in Denver CO, interior passages are smoother, allowing for improved fuel and air flow. This translates into more intense combustion and more complete cylinder evacuation, which can help deliver:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Better fuel efficiency
- Lower emissions
What Kind of Parts Can Be Honed Out in Denver CO?
With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Denver CO. 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. One part that you may not want to hone out is the header, since the honing process would weaken the interior weld. What we can do is add an exterior weld and then smooth the inner surface just enough to enhance flow.
