VVT Sprockets

Variable Valve Timing Sprockets

Variable Valve Timing (VVT) Sprocket from Standard Motor Products

Variable valve timing (VVT) sprockets (a.k.a. cam phasers) help maximize engine horsepower and torque curves while reducing emissions and improving vehicle efficiency.

Standard® has designed numerous improvements into our most popular VVT Sprocket for enhanced performance and long-lasting durability. To ensure proper performance, Standard® and Blue Streak® VVT Sprockets are direct-fit OE replacements. They meet tight dimensional tolerances to improve internal sealing, minimize oil drain back and reduce frequency of PCM correction.

The Standard® Advantage

  • Larger contact area – no friction between sprocket and rotor
  • Design improvements virtually eliminate component wear – less oil loss
  • Advanced coil spring and locking pin
  • Better performance in timing phase response
  • Overall a better performing and longer-lasting VVT Sprocket

Standard®-manufactured VVT Sprockets undergo extensive measurement and life testing, plus a full spectrum of environmental analysis. This regimen includes thermal shock, thermal cycling, salt spray, vibration, storage tests, dirty oil test and more.

Answer VVT FAQs

Blue Streak® VVT sprocket integrated paddle design improves the original.

Our all-metal, integrated machined design eliminates paddle inserts while providing a larger contact area. This means improved overall wear as well as proper lubrication and gap. Less friction means our sprocket responds fast at lower pressure, delivering optimal performance.
