Get your engine components honed out in Pittsburgh PA to improve performance
Are you looking for a way to enhance the performance of an engine? Getting your intake manifold honed out in Pittsburgh PA may be just what you’re looking for. This process can benefit all kinds of engines, from race cars to motorcycles and even personal watercraft.
How Extrude Honing Works
Getting a part honed out in Pittsburgh PA 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 made possible through the use of a specially formulated polymer media that, when pressurized, conforms to the shape of the interior passages and abrades them on all sides. 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
After getting honed out in Pittsburgh PA, interior passages are smoother, allowing for improved fuel and air flow. This translates into more intense combustion and more complete cylinder evacuation, which can help deliver:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Better fuel efficiency
- Lower emissions
What Kind of Parts Can Be Honed Out in Pittsburgh PA?
With the right abrasive media formulation, just about any part that air or fuel flows through can be honed out in Pittsburgh PA. We frequently hone intake manifolds, as well as exhaust manifolds when there is no aftermarket alternative available. While headers contain interior welds that can disrupt flow, you can’t just hone them out. An exterior weld must be added first to ensure the strength and integrity of the part.
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 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.
