Delphi Technologies, a brand of BorgWarner, unveiled its new Sparta fuel-pump line at AAPEX, showcasing one of the latest examples of BorgWarner’s expanded aftermarket portfolio. Product offerings from the Delco Remy and BorgWarner aftermarket brands also were on display.

Designed specifically for older and high-mileage vehicles, Sparta made its AAPEX debut with updated visuals and new packaging. The Sparta brand offers another revenue opportunity for distributors and customers, targeting a specific subgroup of older vehicles.

The company also demonstrated its fuel-tank cleaning tool live at the booth. The tool is designed for scenarios when the fuel tank is difficult to drop or full of fuel; the magnetic head is effective at collecting debris from hard-to-reach areas of the tank. The cleaning tool has been well-received by technicians for helping optimize their productivity and deliver customer satisfaction.

Visitors learned more about other aftermarket product lines, including steering and suspension and engine management. Since the initial launch of the steering and suspension program in 2017, BorgWarner has added more than 5,000 Delphi-branded SKUs, or over 150% growth to the product line now totaling 8,500 SKUs, including more than 2,000 control arms.

All chassis product offerings undergo thorough dimensional and material analyses including extreme temperature, fatigue, three-axis and salt-spray testing in order to ensure premium product, durability, quality and the perfect fit. Further expansion is planned across products such as tie rods, sway bar links, control arms, and ball joints, where the company currently has 98% sales coverage across both domestic and import applications. Similarly, BorgWarner has continued to expand its Delphi Technologies engine-management line by 175 SKUs over the last year, with engine-sensor coverage and ignition coils.

Exhaust-gas temperature sensors, a newer part added to the Delphi Technologies portfolio, now has nearly 50 part numbers spanning both domestic and import applications.

Delphi Academy

Booth visitors also learned about the Delphi Academy, which has been designed with input from technicians to ensure it caters to their needs. It has more than 30 courses run by ASE-certified technicians, with both hands-on and virtual options available on the platform. 

Technicians who lead those training courses were at AAPEX, offering the chance for visitors to learn from the experts. Several courses for electric vehicles and battery electric vehicles are already available through the Delphi Academy with updates planned in the future.

For commercial-vehicle distributors and technicians, BorgWarner brought the recently launched Cummins HPI application kit for the Hartridge HK1400 Cambox. The HK1400 is an all-makes solution for testing electronic unit injectors and electronic unit pumps and is an essential choice for diesel shops servicing diesel commercial vehicles. The HPI application kit is a set of dedicated ancillary hardware that replicates real-world conditions for accurate HPI testing.

Additionally, the Hartridge Sabre CRi Expert was displayed at the show. This advanced, compact, all-makes common rail injector tester comes with new test plans, new test steps, injector-coding feature and a 2,700-bar rail-pressure range enabling testing of LD, MD and HD common rail applications. Its features and functions make the Sabre CRi Expert a future-ready testing solution that helps shops stay ahead of the market, according to the company.
