GDI is an advanced injection system for gasoline engines that, thanks to high operating pressures (more than 100 bars) and sophisticated strategies of multi-point injection combined with turbocharger, allow engine downsizing, improved performances, and significant reductions in fuel consumption and emissions.
GDI direct injection represents an effective powertrain technological solution in order to fall in step with the trend of emission reduction required by regulations in several countries and markets.
In this scenario, Magneti Marelli’s technological offer covers all the the GDI system components (injectors, pump, electronic control unit, software) – as well as the integration know-how.
Magneti Marelli so far has produced approximately 18 million GDI injectors
This is a technology that originated from mass production and has already been applied in the Motorsport as well (specifically in the WRC), and in 2014 will also be used in Formula 1: for this racing application, Magneti Marelli is currently testing injectors and pumps for engines with petrol pressures of up to 500 bar.
