Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in El Segundo 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 hand porting, as many DIY sites suggest.
It’s extrude hone porting in El Segundo CA.
Extrude hone porting, a process which was pioneered over 30 years ago by Extrude Hone AFM’s founder, has since become the process of choice for all kinds of engine enthusiasts. 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
- 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 El Segundo CA, on the other hand, can reach every millimeter of all sides of any passage. This is accomplished by passing a putty-like polymer media loaded with abrasive grit through the passages under pressure from a hydraulic ram. Because we understand the physics of the process, we can easily adjust multiple variables to deliver the precise result you want in terms of material removal.
Benefits of Extrude Hone Porting in El Segundo CA
Extrude hone porting in El Segundo 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.
The result of the extrude hone porting process is increased flow velocity, not flow volume. This in turn encourages improved combustion in the engine, resulting in:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Reduced emissions
In our experience, flow increases about 25 percent after extrude hone porting in El Segundo CA. The corresponding improvement in performance will depend on the configuration of your engine.
