BorgWarner said it was supplying an advanced engine timing system for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' (FCA) new aluminium two-litre petrol engine.

This Alfa Romeo-exclusive engine debuts in the new Giulia sedan and will also be available for the brand's upcoming SUV. BorgWarner's timing system includes a next-generation silent timing chain for direct-injected, boosted engines.

"We are very pleased to expand our successful business with FCA by supplying Alfa Romeo with our sophisticated engine timing solutions, as we have for other FCA engine series since 2010," said Joe Fadool, president and general manager, BorgWarner Morse Systems. "We understand how various complex engine timing components interact with each other. This enables us to deliver leading integrated systems solutions specifically tuned and optimised for each customer application."

The engine timing system is designed to reduce mass and friction for improved fuel economy and engine efficiency. The advanced chain has high-quality finishing links and optimised chain link profiles and pins for improved wear performance. Featuring a precisely designed geometry to reduce mass, the silent timing chain offers claimed best-in-class strength and durability as well as the lowest noise, vibration and harshness on the market. As a systems supplier, BW delivers numerous components for engine timing systems such as chains, tensioners and cam phasers, facilitating a highly tuned engine for optimal timing.
