Honed Out in El Segundo CA

Get your engine components honed out in El Segundo CA to improve performance

Are you looking for a way to enhance the performance of an engine? Consider getting your intake manifold honed out in El Segundo CA by the professionals at Extrude Hone.

How Extrude Honing Works

Getting a part honed out in El Segundo CA requires the removal of a small amount of metal from the interior surfaces. 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. Abrasive flow machining is faster and easier. All interior surfaces can be reached and smoothed evenly. This is made possible through the use of a specially formulated polymer media that, when pressurized, conforms to the shape of the interior passages and abrades them on all sides. The media is designed to keep the abrasive particles evenly distributed for even surface removal throughout the part.

Benefits for Performance

AFM ProcessAfter getting honed out in El Segundo CA, 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 El Segundo CA?

At Extrude Hone, we can create different abrasive media formulations to accommodate just about any part you might want to have honed out in El Segundo CA. This includes both aluminum and cast iron parts. The most common parts to have honed out are intake and exhaust manifolds, but we can also work on turbo impellers, housings and pumps, and cylinders. Honing is not a solution for headers, however, as honing would weaken the weld and create leaks.

Why Choose Extrude Hone

Extrude Hone helped to pioneer the abrasive flow machining process for automotive applications over 30 years ago. In fact, we actually introduced Ford to this process in 1992 and today they use it to enhance some of their top models. We have the knowledge, skills, and experience to provide custom solutions for any project, no matter what material you’re working with or how much you need to remove. Our skill is particularly important when you want flow matched parts, since parts cannot be honed together.
