Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Kansas City KS
Porting intake and exhaust manifolds is often a necessary step for achieving optimal performance in an engine. As a motorsports enthusiast, you probably already know this. But have you considered the best way to get your porting done?
Hint: it’s not hand porting, as many DIY sites suggest.
It’s extrude hone porting in Kansas City KS.
Extrude hone porting is a specialized application of abrasive flow machining that was pioneered by Extrude Hone AFM’s founder in 1974. Unlike hand porting methods which are prone to error, Extrude hone porting in Kansas City KS removes material at a consistent and uniform rate.
Back in 1974, the extrude hone porting technique was first used on a chainsaw motor. However, the benefits of the technique were quickly noticed and extrude hone porting is commonly used on parts 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. The process can be controlled with a high degree of precision to ensure that the porting gets done to the exact specs you have calculated will enhance your engine.
Benefits of Extrude Hone Porting in Kansas City KS
Any passage that fuel or air flows through can benefit from extrude hone porting in Kansas City KS. The biggest improvements in engine performance are seen from porting the manifolds, but porting can also improve 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 Kansas City KS on a manifold increases flow up to 25 percent. The amount of improvement you see in your engine performance will depend on its condition and configuration.
