CLASSIC DUNLOP AVAILABLE AGAIN

If you have a vintage-type kitcar or replica these new Dunlop Sport Aquajet tyres might be of interest to you.

Dunlop has just announced a new production batch of these classic tyres which are renowned for wet grip and fine, dry cornering ability and back in the day they were one of the company’s earliest radial tyres.

Having been on a rainy trip to Derbyshire this week my black X5 was looking a bit unkempt and before it rained (again) I managed to put the Glass Clean product through its paces on a couple of the BMW’s filthy windows.

INTAKE OF BREATH FOR ZETEC

The Ford Zetec engine has been the tuners engine of choice for over 20-years thanks to its lightweight, low cost and ease of tuning. Tuners know that one of the easiest ways to liberate power from a Zetec is to fit a pair of Weber DCOE carburettors.

The key component in that conversion is the intake manifold and Webcon can provide a top quality, UK manufactured, 60mm deep intake manifold that allows fitment of both Weber DCOE carburettors as well as DCOE flange EFI throttle bodies.
