SHARP INTAKE

Edelbrock has expanded its line of Super Victor II intake manifolds for big-block Chevy applications to include CNC port-matched versions.

These single-plane intake manifolds are designed for use with large cubic inch big-block Chevy engines using the latest conventional port heads. They are ideal for any 1000+bhp drag race engines with high airflow requirements.

They utilise modern casting techniques to create smooth, thin and extended divider walls for optimal ‘out of the box’ performance. They have improved runner designs, resulting in increased runner area in the plenum. It also features an extra large carburettor outer flange with a 5in square opening for More >

WELD PLASTIC PARTS

Due to the high costs associated with the replacement of plastic panels (bumpers, inner wings, headlamp bodies, engine covers, motorcycle bodywork, etc), this new kit from Power-TEC (part no 92418) was developed to repair small to medium-sized damage that could render the component unusable.

It is suitable for the general garage and workshop when a quick and robust repair is necessary, without the expense of a professional plastic welding kit. The butane gas-powered welder is small and convenient – thin plastic parts can be welded due to applied heat being contained in a small area.

The device has the advantage over similar More >

The light comes with a magnetic base to fit securely to the shaft of a screw driver or a spanner and includes batteries.

BRIGHT LIGHTS…

LED bulbs are becoming more and more popular and are an excellent upgrade. They have the advantage of a wide angle light distribution design and can be easily installed with no modifications to the car (negative earth only).

New from Moss, they are available in three colours (white, red and amber) to match the colour of the lens application. A white light behind a red lens will result in a pink light, not the universal colour for ‘stop’. Upgrading indicators to LEDs may also need an upgrade to an electronic flasher, as LEDs draw very little current. This means they won’t More >

Welcome to totalkitcar online...

Welcome to totalkitcar online………still lots of queries being raised about changes to vehicle excise duty (car tax discs) that came into force on October 1 in the UK.

A motoring journalist friend raised a good question about insurance and how DVLA is checking it is valid when you apply for car tax, given that discs aren’t being issued anymore. When you went to the post office in person you had to hand over a copy of your insurance document. Anyway, my mate asked the DVLA press office and they came back with an interesting reply, which in essence More >
