Roller tips are probably the most important factor in reducing valve and guide wear when using modern performance camshafts.

Mini Spares has now produced its own Roller Tip Rocker Assembly for 1275cc big bore engines. The assembly features cradle type alloy rocker posts with an increased shaft size to improve rigidity and stronger EN24 adjuster screws with hexagonal head adjustment nuts.

The roller tips have a centreless ground finish and the competition thick-wall shaft sits in bronze bushes.

This is the ultimate lightweight alloy valve gear, providing maximum efficiency while cutting down side-loading on the valve stems and reducing friction and wear while More >


Help reduce the heat in your engine bay with the Mishimoto Turbo Blanket.

One of the main drawbacks to a turbocharger is the massive amount of heat that it produces, which can lead to cooling issues depending on the placement.

With the combination of a volcanic lava rock outer layer and 96 per cent silica inner layer, the Mishimoto turbo blankets have no trouble keeping the heat from permeating throughout the engine bay.

Mishimoto’s turbo blanket’s interior is rated to 1260°C and can withstand up to 982°C of direct exterior heat. The blankets are available in a selection of sizes and also include More >

Here’s another interesting device from Laser Tools. The problem to solve: a fastener buried deep in the engine bay. It may be a pulley securing nut, a water pump mounting bolt or an A/C compressor adjustor.

You may just be able to get a spanner on it, but there’s definitely no room for a ratchet handle if you want to remove the fastener quickly. Reach for this new extension ratchet (part number 7655). It’s 340mm long and enables you to remotely ratchet off the fastener, using either a 3/8in or 1/4in drive ratchet handle.

Its length and super-slim profile allow you to More >

Protecting vital engine components from heat is tough, especially when it comes to fitting into all of the nooks and crannies of an engine bay.

Mishimoto has devised a solution with their Gold Reflective Barrier, which is constructed from a metalised polyamide polymer laminated glass cloth that protects up to 454°C of continuous heat.

This heat barrier also features an adhesive backing for simple installation on uneven and tight spaces and can be easily trimmed to suit the installation space. The Mishimoto Aluminium Silica Heat Barrier is available in two sizes, 304.8 mm x 609.6mm and 609.6 mm x 609.6mm to fit More >


The brilliantly named Rocketeer, who over the last two years have sold over 70 of their Jaguar engine conversion kits for Mazda MX-5, is shifting direction slightly.

Rocketeer co-founder, Bruce Southey told me: “With a view to maintaining the highest quality and delivering on our original vision of building tactile, visceral, analogue sportscars, we are going to focus our business on fully built resto-mod cars and turnkey conversions in future. Engine kit sales will cease at the end of 2019. However, we will, of course, continue to support any self-build projects currently in progress.
