CRP Automotive now offers a special series of AJUSA gaskets for VTEC/Spool Filter and Variable Timing Solenoid applications. These gaskets help solve a chronic problem and improve both the cost and convenience of VTEC engine maintenance.

The VTEC technology applied in Honda and Acura engines allows the engines to maximize power and efficiency by adjusting valve timing and lift using oil pressure to activate the system. If oil change maintenance schedules have been neglected, the screens in the oil housing gaskets will become clogged preventing the VTEC mechanism from working properly.

According to Todd Ciccone, CRP’s AJUSA Brand Manager, “Many of these gaskets are pricey and historically only available from the OE dealer. In some instances the only solution would be to buy the entire Variable Valve Timing Solenoid when all that was needed was a gasket, which costs a fraction of a VTEC unit.”

CRP Automotive is first to market on many of these gaskets for the most common Variable Timing Solenoids and VTEC/Spool Filters and makes them available individually, offering an excellent alternative to a dealer supplied complete VTEC unit.

The new AJUSA kit, PN# 01140000, includes six gaskets: three Variable Timing Solenoid gaskets and three VTEC/Spool Filter gaskets. As technicians use the gaskets they can replenish the kit individually.  Each gasket is individually packaged with AJUSA part numbers for easy reordering.

The new AJUSA kit covers over six million Honda and Acura vehicle applications, so keeping one on the shelf will save time and money and ensure that the shop will have the correct parts “in house” to complete this repair.
