The brand new rangetopping Zenos E10 the ‘R’ has been announced this week featuring a new powerplant – the Ford-sourced turbocharged 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine, which uses a bespoke ECU developed with Zenos’ partner Specialist Components to deliver 40 per cent more power (350bhp) and 19 per cent more torque (349lb/ft). Thanks to a power-to-weight figure of 500 bhp/tonne, the Zenos E10 R delivers very pleasing performance.
The engine’s responsiveness is further heightened by a lightened flywheel assembly and newly-developed three-inch diameter exhaust system. The latter also delivers a purposeful exhaust note, which leaves no uncertainty about the elevated levels of performance More >
If you’re one of the many, many kitcar enthusiasts with a Ford Type 9 gearbox. This partial gear kit set from Burton Power is designed to lower the ratio of first gear from a short 3.65:1 to a much more usable 2.98:1.

Performance filtration specialist Pipercross has the perfect solution for anybody wishing to run carbs or throttle bodies on their race, road or off-road vehicle, but needs to keep things neat and compact; the Universal Trumpet Sock range!
Sold in pairs, or as a double stack version, these versatile little filters fit over the vast majority of velocity stacks and inlet pipes, simply dropping over the top and gripping thanks to the inherent tension in the foam. In instances where more security of fitment is needed, a simple cable tie around the base secures the sock firmly, ready to take on the More >
These new digital torque ratchets are designed to secure fasteners that need to be tightened to lower torque figures and when therefore over-tightening is a real risk. Smaller in length than a full sized torque wrench, they give a convenient and functional solution to this risk of over-tightening.
The ¼in drive model (part number 6207) is a compact 200mm long and covers the range 6-30Nm (4.4-22.1 ft/lb); the 3/8in drive model (part number 6206) is 230mm long and ranges between 16-80Nm (11.8-59 ft/lb); the ½in drive model (part number 6205) is 275mm long and ranges between 20-100Nm (14.8-73lb/ft).

Jenvey Dynamics has announced the launch of a new direct-to-head individual throttle body (ITB) for the 2.5-litre Ford Duratec engine. The innovative new set-up has been engineered so that the injectors are seated beneath the throttle body, negating the need for an overhead fuel rail: ideal for use in restricted engine bays or where low level bonnets can cause packaging problems.
“We are proud of our track record for carefully considered innovation, and have identified a need for a modular, high-quality direct-to-head ITB kit for the 2.5-litre Ford Duratec engine,” said Jenvey Dynamics Ltd. managing director, Mike Jenvey.

Ultrasonic cleaning is a thorough, fast and safe way of cleaning small and difficult to clean parts. This new ultrasonic cleaner from Laser Tools (part number 6164) is larger than most, its generous 13-litre fluid tank capacity enabling the cleaning of automotive components such as dismantled carburettors, brake parts, etc.
The cleaner uses high frequency sound waves to create millions of tiny bubbles in the liquid solution. These bubbles expand and collapse rapidly, the energy released creating an intense scrubbing action which is equally as effective on unseen small crevices and blind holes as on visible surfaces. The dirt is loosened More >
