Get honed out in Columbus OH to improve your engine's performance
Are you looking for a way to enhance the performance of an engine? Getting your intake manifold honed out in Columbus OH 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 Columbus OH 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
Getting essential engine components honed out in Columbus OH 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 Columbus OH?
With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Columbus OH. 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. The most common parts to have honed out are intake and exhaust manifolds, but we can also work on turbo impellers, housings and pumps, and cylinders. Honing is not a solution for headers, however, as honing would weaken the weld and create leaks.
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.
