Re: Port & Polish vs. Extrude Hone

Depends on what your ultimate goal is...
Extrude honing is great for removing the same amount of material throughout the
ports, but just making the ports larger isn't always the answer.
Hand porting allows you to correct airflow as well as increase it. In our
experience this has proven to be more cost effective than extrude honing.
