Honed Out in Irvine CA

Get your engine components honed out in Irvine CA to improve performance

Are you looking for a way to enhance the performance of an engine? Whether you’re talking about a muscle car, motorcycle, high-performance truck, or even a personal watercraft, getting key parts of the engine honed out in Irvine CA provides a simple path to enhanced performance.

How Extrude Honing Works

Getting a part honed out in Irvine CA 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. Abrasive flow machining is faster and easier. All interior surfaces can be reached and smoothed evenly. This is accomplished by passing a specially formulated, abrasive-laden polymer media through the part. This media suspends the abrasive particles uniformly and allows them to recirculate so that you get even surface removal on every twist and bend.

Benefits for Performance

AFM ProcessirAfter getting honed out in Irvine 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 Irvine CA?

With the right abrasive media formulation, just about any part that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Irvine CA. 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. One part that cannot be honed out is the header; however we can put a weld bead on the outside and then smooth down the inner weld to create a better angle for you.
