Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Placentia CA
If you are a gearhead, you are most likely already familiar with the benefits of porting intake and exhaust manifolds and other engine components to enhance fuel and air flow. But can you name the number one method for porting?
Hint: it’s not hand porting, as many DIY sites suggest.
It’s extrude hone porting in Placentia CA.
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. Today it’s used by OEMs like Cadillac and Ford on their top selling models, and it is also being used by hobbyists 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 Placentia CA 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 Placentia CA
Any passage that fuel or air flows through can benefit from extrude hone porting in Placentia CA. 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
We can’t make specific promises as to how much more horsepower you’ll get or how much fuel efficiency will improve after extrude hone porting in Placentia CA, because these end results depend on your specific engine configuration. 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.
