Synergy Project: VVA Hardware Successfully Tested

The Synergy cylinder head was assembled and successfully tested on a spin rig at Mechadyne this month. The VLD mechanism, allowing for reduced manufacturing cost and ease of assembly, worked as predicted and will now be sent to IFP for fired engine testing. With a targeted 20% tailpipe CO2 reduction and Euro 6/7 emissions legislation compliance with minimal NOx after-treatment, we look forward to viewing the published results from this project with interest.
