Induction System Science
The complexity of cylinder head set up and flow bench testing comes in the form of math, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, and the physics it takes to design the correct port and manifold design for a particular engine combination. These processes take years to master.
Cylinder Head Trends
Cylinder heads, as manufactured, are usually suboptimal due to design and manufacturing constraints. Porting the heads provides the finely detailed attention required to bring the engine to the highest level of efficiency.
Cylinder Head Porting; Turning Air Into Power
In general, the most critical areas when porting a cylinder head are those which pass the most air at the highest speed and for the longest duration.
Katech Develops New Proprietary CNC Porting Technology
Katech Inc. has developed new proprietary CNC porting technology to increase horsepower on Gen 5 LT1 and LT4 engines found in C7 Corvettes and Gen 6 Camaros. Katech’s CNC porting technology increases the heads’ airflow velocity and capacity.
