Enhance the performance of your engine with extrude hone porting in Torrance 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 Torrance CA.
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. 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
Whereas hand porting can only improve surfaces that hand tools can reach, extrude hone porting in Torrance CA can improve the entire passageway and carries no risk of ripples or unevenness. This is accomplished by passing a putty-like polymer media loaded with abrasive grit through the passages under pressure from a hydraulic ram. 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 Torrance CA
Extrude hone porting in Torrance CA can deliver many benefits for any passage that gas or liquid will be flowing through. 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.
This process does not alter flow volume, but it does improve flow velocity. Combustion becomes more intense, encouraging:
- Increased horsepower
- More thrust
- More torque
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Reduced emissions
Typically, extrude hone porting in Torrance CA on a manifold increases flow up to 25 percent. This will translate into different degrees of improvement in performance depending on how your engine is set up.
