Magnaflux Engine Block

Magnaflux testing examines the block to find any cracks, pits, voids, holes, or other weaknesses not seen by the naked eye. This is important to know, as to not waste valuable machining dollars on a weak block. Aluminum cylinder heads are susceptible to cracks or leaks after a head gasket failure.

Sonic Check Cylinder Walls 

Sonic testing process that determines the thickness of the cylinder walls to ensure safe boring of the cylinders without exceeding minimum recommended thickness.

Boring a block

Block Boring 

Bore Cylinders up to 0.030"

Boring engine block uses a machine to enlarge the diameter of the cylinders. A high-performance engine or worn engine will often result in cylinders that are out of round. That negatively affects ring seals, causing lower compression and a loss of power. Boring the engine perfectly trues the cylinders back to round. Most high-mileage engine rebuilds require a mild boring. Boring will also increase engine displacement.
