The upgrade path

For Light Duty & Medium and Heavy Duty Engines

How this works

The key to many of Mechadyne’s technologies is the ability to upgrade the Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) specification with little or no re-design.
This is particularly true for over-head cam engines where simple part substitution allows us to run a cylinder head in three different configurations:

Key advantages

Designing a cylinder head with provision for VVA has many advantages:

  • Engines in the same production line can be built with different VVA specifications.
  • An engine’s VVA specification can change as and when legislation dictates.
  • Minimal investment is required for adding a VVA system at a later date.
