THAT’S CRATE!

ATK makes some very nice and very powerful crate engines. They also happen to make some equally nice aluminium cylinder heads that will give your current small block Chevy some added punch.

Cast, CNC-machined, and assembled in the USA, the ATK High Performance Cylinder Heads flow some impressive numbers. For example, with 210cc intake ports, they flow 293cfm on the intake side at .800in of valve lift, and 207cfm on the exhaust side at the same lift figure. That’s enough airflow to feed a small block pushing 600bhp

CATERHAM CARS ON CAMERA

Caterham Cars made its debut at the Regent Street Motor Show this year. For several years, Caterham has sadly never been a ‘cars on carpet’ exhibitor at shows and it approached this event no differently.

Instead of simply displaying a car on the iconic London street, Caterham showcased its appeal as a car you can build as a kit at home by staging a live build of one of its legendary Sevens.

The challenge was that the one-day event meant that Caterham had to be in and out of its spot on Regent Street by 5pm, so the part-built car needed to More >

WHAT’S THAT IAN DURY SONG? WHAT A WASTE(GATE)?

The alloy artisans at Forge Motorsport have raised the bar with another British designed, developed and manufactured component. The Gloucester-based concern’s all-new and improved external wastegate sets unseen standards of fit, finish and function for the industry and is suitable for all high-performance forced induction cars.

Among the many notable design features, one of the most impressive is the use of a piston-actuated mechanism, rather than the more common, and less durable, diaphragm type. This product has been designed from the outset to cope with the rigours of high-level motorsport, being able to withstand large horsepower, boost and temperature figures for More >
