Early days for Ford Coyote V8 in the UK, but it’s going to be fitted to many Cobra replicas and other cars calling for a V8 fitment. It’s already very popular with kit and specialist car builders in North America.

This is a factory style damper for the Coyote engine and features a 7.75in diameter eight-rib design that delivers maximum traction and stability in supercharged applications.

MAN NOT RUSHING

West Yorkshire-based, M-A-N Motorsport is making good progress with formulating their plans for the DAX Rush. The three constituent parts of the company, Matt Pett, Anthony Cockroft and Nigel Barker, are realists and understand that you have to walk before you can run.

However, that doesn’t mean that they are standing still. Far from it. They have been working hard on the BMW M3-based demonstrator they acquired as part of the project purchase and have also sourced a very cool-looking Rush M/C with motorcycle power that will act as a demo car for those who want one of the finest Lotus More >

SUMP PLUGS? SO LAST YEAR, DAH’LING!

Now, here’s a cool product that got me wondering why I hadn’t thought of it!

It’s called the EZ Oil Drain Valve and is a very simple yet innovative idea that replaces your sump plug, with a tap-type valve. This means that when it’s time to drain your oil you just open the valve to drain your system, easily and without a mess all over you and your driveway.

It requires a twin-action to open, so can’t be done inadvertently. The US manufacturer hopes to have a UK distributor very soon although in the meantime is more than happy to ship to More >

WHAT A SHINER

I’m a big fan of the underdog, always have been. That translates to my love of specialist cars and also niche products from small producers, great stuff like Sugru, GuHu, ValetPRO and a lovely range of car detailing products made in the West Midlands called Pride & Joy…

I first met, Derrick Hemingsley at Stoneleigh in May, when he introduced me to his range of products. Now, regular readers will know I am an avid, make that obsessional, collector of car detailing products, so I can be a little sceptical about new arrivals.

However, there was something about Pride & Joy and More >
