Extrude Hone Porting in Santa Ana CA

Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Santa Ana 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 have you considered the best way to get your porting done?

Hint: it’s not hand porting, as many DIY sites suggest.

It’s extrude hone porting in Santa Ana 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. We personally demonstrated this technology to Ford in 1992 and today it is used to enhance some of their top models. Extrude hone porting is also commonly used on parts for:

  • 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 Santa Ana 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 Santa Ana CA

AFM ProcessAFM ProcessAny passage that fuel or air flows through can benefit from extrude hone porting in Santa Ana CA. 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.

This process does not alter flow volume, but it does improve flow velocity. 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 Santa Ana CA. This will translate into different degrees of improvement in performance depending on how your engine is set up.
