A modular engine is built around four modules:


A modular engine is built around four modules:

  • the intake module
  • the cylinder head module (RH)
  • the cylinder head module (LH)
  • the lower engine module

While not all repairs can take advantage of the modular concept, most out-of-vehicle repairs benefit due to the reduction of necessary time and labor.

The basic engine components consist of the following:

  • single overhead camshafts
  • two valves per cylinder
  • sequential multiport fuel injection (SFI)
  • aluminum cylinder heads (6049)
  • cast iron, 90-degree V-shaped cylinder block
  • individual ignition coils for each spark plug
  • composite-material intake manifold
  • large-bore throttle body
