Get your engine components honed out in Dallas TX to improve performance
Are you constantly looking for the next upgrade you can make to enhance your engine? Getting your intake manifold honed out in Dallas TX 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 Dallas TX 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. The media is designed to keep the abrasive particles evenly distributed for even surface removal throughout the part.
Benefits for Performance
When a part is honed out in Dallas TX, air and fuel can flow better through the interior passages, giving you better volumetric efficiency and:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Better fuel efficiency
- Lower emissions
What Kind of Parts Can Be Honed Out in Dallas TX?
With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Dallas TX. 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.
