Get your engine components honed out in Indianapolis IN to improve performance
Are you looking for a way to enhance the performance of an engine? Whether you’re talking about a muscle car, motorcycle, high-performance truck, or even a personal watercraft, getting key parts of the engine honed out in Indianapolis IN provides a simple path to enhanced performance.
How Extrude Honing Works
Getting a part honed out in Indianapolis IN 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 accomplished by passing a specially formulated, abrasive-laden polymer media through the part. 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 Indianapolis IN, 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 Indianapolis IN?
With a few exceptions, most engine parts that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Indianapolis IN. 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. 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.
Why Choose Extrude Hone
Extrude Hone has been a leader in abrasive flow machining for over 30 years. We actually pioneered the process for automotive parts. We understand the science behind the process in detail, meaning we can deliver superior results with the size of the abrasive particles, type of polymer media, the pressure level, and the tooling holding your part customized to your specific needs. Our skill is particularly important when you want flow matched parts, since parts cannot be honed together.
