Hyundai has given Delphi a letter of intent to purchase approximately $US400 million of complete engine management systems for a new V6 engine.

Production of the new engine is expected to begin in Korea in the near future and, by then, Delphi will have invested $20 million at EMS facilities in Korea and North America to support the deal.

Delphi will provide an engine management system that features the powertrain control module and the complete engine control system including integrated air-fuel module, cam-phasers, injection system and sensors.
