Extrude Hone Porting in San Jose CA

Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in San Jose CA

If you are a gearhead, you are most likely already familiar with the benefits of porting intake and exhaust manifolds and other engine components to enhance fuel and air flow. But can you name the number one method for porting?

Hint: it’s not hand porting.

It’s extrude hone porting in San Jose CA.

AFM ProcessAlso sometimes called PowerFlow, the extrude hone porting process was invented by one of our company’s founders in 1974. The first engine improved by porting was actually a chainsaw, but the benefits of the process were quickly adapted to all kinds of engines. 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
  • Motorcycles
  • Personal watercraft
  • High-performance trucks

How Extrude Hone Porting Works

Whereas hand porting can only improve surfaces that hand tools can reach, extrude hone porting in San Jose CA can improve the entire passageway and carries no risk of ripples or unevenness. This is possible because extrude hone porting uses an abrasive-laden polymer that can conform to the exact dimensions of the passage. As the polymer runs through the part, it becomes a flexible slug that sands away material evenly on all sides. 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 San Jose CA

AFM ProcessAFM ProcessExtrude hone porting in San Jose CA can deliver many benefits for any passage that gas or liquid will be flowing through. The most commonly ported parts are intake and exhaust manifolds, but we can also port 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

Typically, extrude hone porting in San Jose CA on a manifold increases flow up to 25 percent. The corresponding improvement in performance will depend on the configuration of your engine.
