Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Terre Haute IN
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 have you considered the best way to get your porting done?
Hint: it’s not porting by hand.
It’s extrude hone porting in Terre Haute IN.
Also sometimes called PowerFlow, the Extrude hone porting process was invented by one of our company’s founders in 1974. The first engine improved by porting was actually a chainsaw, but the benefits of the process were quickly adapted to all kinds of engines. We personally demonstrated this technology to Ford in 1992 and today it is used to enhance some of their top models. Extrude hone porting is also commonly used on parts for
- Racing engines
- Muscle cars
- Personal watercraft
- High-performance trucks
How Extrude Hone Porting Works
Whereas hand porting can only improve surfaces that hand tools can reach, extrude hone porting in Terre Haute IN can improve the entire passageway and carries no risk of ripples or unevenness. While hand porting is done with brushes and files, extrude hone porting is done with an abrasive polymer media. As the polymer runs through the part, it becomes a flexible slug that sands away material evenly on all sides of the hole or passage. Our polymer media is designed to allow the abrasive grit to recirculate constantly, so that fresh abrasive is always contacting the surfaces being honed. 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 Terre Haute IN
By reducing turbulence, extrude hone porting in Terre Haute IN can benefit any passage that will be directing air or fuel through the engine. 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 Terre Haute IN 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.
