Quality Aftermarket

To ensure that all our cylinder heads meet specifications, each passes a set of tests so rigorous that in 2005 we obtained the certification that allows us to supply parts as Original Equipment.

Control and Certification

The cylinder heads pass individually through valve leak tests, through water circuit pressure tests and oil circuit pressure tests. Measurement checks are made according to the machining specifications of each cylinder head and the measurements are compared electronically with the original specifications.

Finally, a visual check of the entire piece is done individually before packaging.
