Get your engine components honed out in Kansas City KS to improve performance

Do you want to get the best possible performance from your engine? Getting your intake manifold honed out in Kansas City KS may be just what you’re looking for. This process can benefit all kinds of engines, from race cars to motorcycles and even personal watercraft.

How Extrude Honing Works

When a part is honed out in Kansas City KS, a small amount of metal--about 1 mm--is removed from the surfaces of the interior passages. While this can be done by hand, you’d end up spending countless hours and you may not be able to reach all the interior passages of a given part. Abrasive flow machining is faster and easier. All interior surfaces can be reached and smoothed evenly. The secret to this process is a polymer media that works sort of like liquid sandpaper when passed through the part under pressure. The media is designed to keep the abrasive particles evenly distributed for even surface removal throughout the part.

Benefits for Performance

AFM ProcessWhen a part is honed out in Kansas City KS, air and fuel can flow better through the interior passages, giving you better volumetric efficiency and:

  • Increased horsepower
  • More thrust
  • More torque
  • Better fuel efficiency
  • Lower emissions

What Kind of Parts Can Be Honed Out in Kansas City KS?

With the right abrasive media formulation, just about any part that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Kansas City KS. 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.
