Borg Warner, Camaros and Vipers

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctorfeelgood @ 9:40 am

Before October, I only knew Borg-Warner as a company that built the awesome transmissions for the Camaro Z28 I used to own.  I have been on the road most of Nov/Dec working on a production line for Borg Warner Engineered Thermal Systems.  The line makes a clutch for the cooling fans for heavy-duty equipment (trucks mostly).  Here is a pic – nice huh?

The production line assembles all the pats into a finished unit.

The coolest thing I saw was the production line that makes ALL of the Dodge Viper throttle-body assemblies – i.e. every Viper in existence has it’s air intake regulation made at the plant I was in.  Cool.

Weird – there is an actual town named Cadillac here in Michigan.  Reminds me of northern Saskatchewan actually!!
