Get your engine components honed out in Atlanta GA to improve performance
Do you want to get the best possible performance from your engine? Getting your intake manifold honed out in Atlanta GA 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
Getting a part honed out in Atlanta GA involves smoothing the interior surfaces by polishing away some of the surface of the metal. While hand honing is possible, it is not the most efficient process. It takes far too long, and it may not reach the deepest interior passages. Abrasive flow machining provides a superior alternative, enabling you to achieve consistent, uniform, and controllable surface changes in the entire part. The secret to this process is a polymer media that works sort of like liquid sandpaper when passed through the part under pressure. 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
Getting essential engine components honed out in Atlanta GA can increase fuel and air flow by up to 25 percent. This in turn will give you:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Better fuel efficiency
- Lower emissions
What Kind of Parts Can Be Honed Out in Atlanta GA?
With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Atlanta GA. We can vary the abrasive media depending on the type of metal in the part--for example, a lighter abrasive for aluminum and a heavier one for cast iron. We frequently hone intake manifolds, as well as exhaust manifolds when there is no aftermarket alternative available. 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.
