NAPA® Echlin® delivers premium quality VVT solenoids and sprockets with improvements over the original.
With NAPA® Echlin® lineup design improvements over the OE, we deliver a line of high-quality, long-lasting VVT components that are designed and manufactured for superior performance under all operating conditions.
Premium-quality VVT components are manufactured at SMP Poland, our most advanced design, engineering and manufacturing facility. With 60+ engineers on-site, we introduce more than 110 new products each year.
SMP-manufactured VVT solenoids and sprockets undergo extensive measurement and life testing plus a full spectrum of environmental analysis that includes thermal shock, thermal cycling, salt spray, vibration, storage tests and more.
This unwavering commitment to quality ensures that every VVT component measures up to real-world conditions.
Our all-metal, integrated machined design eliminates paddle inserts while providing a larger contact area. This means improved overall wear as well as proper lubrication and gap. Less friction means our sprocket responds fast at lower pressure, delivering optimal performance.
