Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Columbus OH
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 Columbus OH
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
Whereas hand porting can only improve surfaces that hand tools can reach, extrude hone porting in Columbus OH can improve the entire passageway and carries no risk of ripples or unevenness. In extrude hone porting, a putty-like polymer media loaded with abrasive grit is passed through the passages in a manifold under pressure from a hydraulic ram.
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. Our polymer media is designed to allow the abrasive grit to recirculate constantly, so that fresh abrasive is always contacting the surfaces being honed. The process can be controlled with a high degree of precision to ensure that the porting gets done to the exact specs you have calculated will enhance your engine.
Benefits of Extrude Hone Porting in Columbus OH
Extrude hone porting in Columbus OH can deliver many benefits for any passage that gas or liquid will be flowing through. The biggest improvements in engine performance are seen from porting the manifolds, but porting can also improve 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
The exact benefits you’ll see in each of these areas after extrude hone porting in Columbus OH depends on how your engine is configured. 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.
