Get your engine components honed out in Houston TX to improve performance
Even the best manufacturing process can leave behind tiny imperfections in the interior surfaces of your engine parts. Getting your parts honed out in Houston TX will remove these imperfections and enhance performance.
How Extrude Honing Works
Getting a part honed out in Houston TX involves smoothing the interior surfaces by polishing away some of the surface of the metal. 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. The secret to this process is a polymer media that works sort of like liquid sandpaper when passed through the part under pressure. 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 Houston TX 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 Houston TX?
With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Houston 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. If you only hone out one part, make it your intake manifold as this will deliver the biggest performance gains. One part that you may not want to hone out is the header, since the honing process would weaken the interior weld. What we can do is add an exterior weld and then smooth the inner surface just enough to enhance flow.
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. We can also perfectly flow match components.
