Improved engine performance comes with extrude hone porting in Nashville TN
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 can you name the number one method for porting?
Hint: it’s not porting by hand.
It’s extrude hone porting in Nashville TN.
Extrude hone porting, a process which was pioneered over 30 years ago by Extrude Hone AFM’s founder, has since become the process of choice for all kinds of engine enthusiasts. Several manufacturers including Cadillac and Ford have adopted this process for their top models, and countless individuals have used it for aftermarket improvements on:
- Racing engines
- Muscle cars
- Personal watercraft
- High-performance trucks
How Extrude Hone Porting Works
Unlike hand porting methods which are prone to error, extrude hone porting in Nashville TN reaches every part of the passage in one pass to remove material at a consistent and uniform rate. Instead of being done with brushes and files, extrude hone porting is done with an abrasive polymer media. We have developed a huge variety of polymers for this purpose. They can carry different sizes of abrasive grit and flow slower or faster through the tooling to achieve different finishing effects. Our polymer media will flow through countless cycles without clogging or separating. Fresh abrasive particles will constantly recirculate to the edges of the media, so you always get even honing on every exposed surface. 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 Nashville TN
Any passage that fuel or air flows through can benefit from extrude hone porting in Nashville TN. 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. Fuel is burned more efficiently and exhaust is evacuated more completely. The result is:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Reduced emissions
The exact benefits you’ll see in each of these areas after extrude hone porting in Nashville TN depends on how your engine is configured. However, you can expect to see up to 25 percent increase in flow after honing an intake manifold, which will give you an idea of how much performance will improve.
