Get your engine components honed out in Birmingham AL to improve performance
Are you constantly looking for the next upgrade you can make to enhance your engine? Consider getting your intake manifold honed out in Birmingham AL by the professionals at Extrude Hone.
How Extrude Honing Works
Getting a part honed out in Birmingham AL requires the removal of a small amount of metal from the interior surfaces. While it is possible to hone by hand, this requires great skill and lots of time. And even the most expert technician won’t be able to reach around the curves of all the interior passages. Abrasive flow machining is faster and easier.
All interior surfaces can be reached and smoothed evenly. This is made possible through the use of a specially formulated polymer media that, when pressurized, conforms to the shape of the interior passages and abrades them on all sides. Because the media allows the abrasive particles to recirculate, there is always fresh abrasive at the surface and every millimeter of the passage will undergo consistent and controllable removal.
Benefits for Performance
After getting honed out in Birmingham AL, interior passages are smoother, allowing for improved fuel and air flow. This translates into more intense combustion and more complete cylinder evacuation, which can help deliver:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Better fuel efficiency
- Lower emissions
What Kind of Parts Can Be Honed Out in Birmingham AL?
At Extrude Hone, we can create different abrasive media formulations to accommodate just about any part you might want to have honed out in Birmingham AL. This includes both aluminum and cast iron parts. 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.
Why Choose Extrude Hone
Extrude Hone helped to pioneer the abrasive flow machining process for automotive applications over 30 years ago. In fact, we actually introduced Ford to this process in 1992 and today they use it to enhance some of their top models. We have the knowledge, skills, and experience to provide custom solutions for any project, no matter what material you’re working with or how much you need to remove. Our skill is particularly important when you want flow matched parts, since parts cannot be honed together.
