  4. I ended up spending about £8k... but my project grew slightly once it was in bits and I got a bit carried away with "toys" for it To get it done properly with forged pistons, Cosworth Head bolts, air pump removal, Tumbler valve removal and a bigger oil pump you should be looking at around £5k for a future-proof engine Remember and factor in a re-map too if you remove the TGR and air pump... as it throws up a malfunction light
  5. Earlier
  6. Think it cost me about £5000. I had my block pinned too!
  7. Cheers guys apologies as a novice in such things , will call alyn tomorrow as not to far from myself any ideas on costs on this pls ? Normally would get 3 quotes as don't like my leg lifted but tbh would like work done sooner rather than later thanks again you lot are a god send
  8. See alyn at as performance he'll sort you out, you may as well get the block all decked ready for big power
  9. Sure that's not the first time the HG has gone on #247! I'd definitely consider getting the pistons forged, with uprated Cosworth stopper HG & ARP head-studs. Worth removing the secondary air pump, oil pump & depending on mileage maybe a clutch.
  10. Evening all looks like the HG gone on 247 , any recommendations in north east to get relevant work done pls ? Just looking to keep it stock and just replacing any weak spots prob get belts and pump done at same time any help would be much appreciated as always many thanks mark

Magnetic Sump Plugs from Gold Plug - The last drain plug you'll ever need! Another American company, Gold Plug was started in 2001, simply because they were fed up of not being able to find a good quality magnetic drain plug for their street bike engine that they had just finished rebuilding. After searching high and low, Gold Plug was born. Now, their daily mission is to supply the very best magnetic drain plugs to keep your vehicle running in the best possible condition. Why choose a magnetic oil plug over a standard sump plug you ask? Well, there's quite a few reasons actually. Every time you run your engine, there will be a build-up of contamination in the form of thousands and thousands of very small particles of ferrous metal. The main cause for these microscopic particles is friction, and you can imagine how much of this is generated when driving hard. To put things in perspective, an engine travelling at just 2000rpm sends the pistons up and down the bore 33 times per second. Imagine what a day on track is doing to your engine! The oil filter does its part in keeping these filtered, however, they can only filter out particles larger than 35 microns. These nanoparticles of metal suspended in the oil are considerably smaller than this, and to top it all off, the smaller the particle, the more damage they can do - This is because they travel pretty much anywhere in your engine when under hydraulic pressure. The only way to "trap" these particles is with very strong magnetism. You can find them HERE. If you fancy a look at exactly how magnetic sump plugs work, you will find a handy video on each product page. Have a look below for links to just a few of the vehicles they cover: - Subaru - Nissan - Mitsubishi - BMW - Honda - Audi - Mercedes - Toyota - Ford - Peugot - Mazda - Volkswagen - Renault - Volvo - Land Rover - Mini - Gold Plug have designed their range to fit over 100,000 cars and motorbikes, so if you need any advice on the correct one for you, then please get in touch. Why rely on just any old drain plug, when you can have one from Gold Plug that saves your engine from the wear and tear of metal particles? One last time, that code is: HG20 and is running until the end of March, so if you want to get 20% off either of these great brands, you'll want to get these orders in as soon as you can. It's also worth keeping an eye on our current offers page HERE. There are all sorts of goodies to be found! If you've got something a bit special and need a bit of advice, then give us a ring for a bespoke and impartial recommendation that is tailored to your specific set up. We're in the office Monday to Friday 8:30 - 5:30, on 01209 202 944 and You can also drop us a message on here. Until next time, Oilman

  18. We expect the majority of you have heard of Millers Nanodrive Oils by now - They were a real game changer when they were first introduced to the world of motorsports, providing a dedicated range of oils that were designed to increase power by reducing friction, all thanks to their nifty "Nanodrive Additive Package" Well, the tech guys at Millers Oils have done it again. They're improved on what was considered the peak of performance oils by ushering in a new and improved range for their motorsport category, and Opie Oils are pleased to announce that they are on the shelf and ready to go - just in time for the race season! Millers are driven by their obsession to produce highly innovative products which offer outstanding friction reducing properties. This is at the core of everything that they do. Due to an intense development programme, their new and improved range of next generation competition racing oils now incorporates their award winning NANODRIVE ultra low friction technology across the board. CSS (Competition Semi-Synthetic) and CFS (Competition Fully Synthetic) First off, we have the CSS and CFS range. Millers have significantly improved the capabilities of the already established CSS and CFS oils by incorporating a high performance, triple ester formulation, and then adding a measured amount of their unique NANODRIVE additive package. It's the addition of this little beauty that can effortlessly deliver up to 15% lower levels of friction than their predecessors. The entire CFS range is all fully synthetic and has benefitted massively by this addition of the NANODRIVE additive package, offering a further 26% reduction in friction than their predecessors. Simply put, you can expect significantly improved levels of performance on track and road, delivering great value and performance levels in an affordable package - these are designed to increase the performance of an engine in respect of improved HP and increased torque.

They have completely redefined their criteria usually associated with a performance lubricant to bring an absolute top of the range product to those in the absolute top tiers and demands of motorsport. This range features their new and improved NANODRIVE NT+ ultra low friction package. If you thought their previous range of Nanodrive oils were great, and they couldn't possibly improve on them, this NT+ package is proven to reduce engine friction by a further 15% over and above this previous multi-award winning products - this sets the NT+ range apart from all others in this arena, providing immediately noticeable increased levels of power and torque as well as increased efficiency in your engine's performance.

Their competition grade transmission oils have been formulated using a unique combo of improved chemistry and NANODRIVE additives to massively reduce friction against a standard oil.
