Improved engine performance comes with extrude hone porting in Birmingham AL
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 do you know the most effective method for getting this done?
Hint: it’s not porting by hand.
It’s extrude hone porting in Birmingham AL.
Also 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. Several manufacturers, including Cadillac and Ford have adopted this process for their top models, and countless individuals have used it for aftermarket improvements on:
- Racing engines
- Muscle cars
- Personal watercraft
- High-performance trucks
How Extrude Hone Porting Works
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 of the hole or passage. We can control the process to remove the precise amount of material required to enhance your par
Benefits of Extrude Hone Porting in Birmingham AL
Any passage that fuel or air flows through can benefit from extrude hone porting in Birmingham AL. 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. Combustion becomes more intense, encouraging:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Reduced emissions
We can’t make specific promises as to how much more horsepower you’ll get or how much fuel efficiency will improve after extrude hone porting in Birmingham AL, because these end results depend on your specific engine configuration. However, you can expect to see up to 25 percent increase in flow after honing an intake manifold, which will give you an idea of how much performance will improve.
