Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Indianapolis IN
If you know a lot about cars, you probably already know that parts like intake and exhaust manifolds are seldom optimized for the best fuel and air flow in your average vehicle--instead, these parts must be ported. 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 Indianapolis IN.
Extrude hone porting is a specialized application of abrasive flow machining that was pioneered by Extrude Hone AFM’s founder in 1974. Whereas hand porting can only improve surfaces that hand tools can reach, Extrude hone porting in Indianapolis IN can improve the entire passageway and carries no risk of ripples or unevenness.
Though the first application of extrude hone porting was designed for a chainsaw motor, the technique has since been adapted for:
- Racing engines
- Muscle cars
- Personal watercraft
- High-performance trucks
How Extrude Hone Porting Works
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. Though the media may be almost liquid at first, when it is pushed into the part under pressure it becomes firmer, transforming into a flexible slug that conforms to the exact shape of the hole or passage and grinds away the metal. We can control the process to remove the precise amount of material required to enhance your part.
Benefits of Extrude Hone Porting in Indianapolis IN
By reducing turbulence, extrude hone porting in Indianapolis IN can benefit any passage that will be directing air or fuel through the engine. The most commonly ported parts are intake and exhaust manifolds, but we can also port engine heads, turbo impellers, housings and pumps, and 2 or 4 stroke cylinders.
After extrude hone porting, parts have a freer flow with greater velocity. This in turn encourages improved combustion in the engine, resulting in:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Reduced emissions
Typically, extrude hone porting in Indianapolis IN on a manifold increases flow up to 25 percent. The corresponding improvement in performance will depend on the configuration of your engine.
