It’s said that this oil is being replaced with a new formulation, API CK-4, that reduces levels of ZDDP, on the order of 800 parts per million (ppm). That’s not enough to prevent premature cam wear or even failure in engines with flat tappet camshafts.

Fortunately, the oil experts at Joe Gibbs Driven offer BR-Series Break-In Oil that contains highest levels of zinc and phosphorus to promote piston ring seal and provide More >

J15 RE-JOINS VECTIS ON SYLVA PRICELIST

Sylva J15 back in production

After virtually ceasing production of their Ford-based J15 model, Sylva Sportscars has re-introduced it, due primarily to public demand, after it had been superseded by the MG TF-based Vectis , with which it shares its shape.

Sylva boss, David MacBean told me: “I always wanted the option of a Ford-based car and while the TF-based Vectis is cost-effective there is a definitely a market for the Ford-based J15 that we couldn’t service without that car.”

David will balance production of the two models by producing them in small batches to ease manufacture issues for a small company.  I More >
