Omex has just released its new “Direct to Head” throttle bodies for 2- and 2.3-litre Ford Duratec engines.

The system combines individual 45mm diameter throttle bodies with the inlet manifold in one compact casting to allow the system to be installed in a confined space, thus making it ideal for kit cars as well as road and competition vehicles.

For modern cars this usually involves screwing in the towing eye that came with the vehicle, but for classics the towing eye(s) may not be so conveniently or obviously located (if they were even fitted), which might result in the recovery team resorting to using a More >
