  5. Opies are pleased to announce that we will be running a very special offer for the whole of March on a couple of our very popular brands: Heatshield Products for thermal protection, and Gold Plugs magnetic oil drain plugs. You will be able to get a massive 20% discount on all products from these ranges - all you need to do is enter the code: HG20 at checkout to get these fantastic products at a fantastic price. Simple! To make you aware, only one discount code can be used at a time, but this code will work on all products from both brands This offer is our way of giving you guys a bit of a boost in time for the summer. If you've got any track days or the like planned, then now is the time to be cracking on with any work you've got planned on your vehicle, and all the products from Gold Plug and Heatshield are designed from the ground up to improve the running of your car. For a little bit of info on both brands, have a look below. Heatshield Products - Top of the range thermal insulation, all the way from the USA HeatShield Products was established in 1985 as a family owned and operated business, and has gone from strength to strength ever since. A huge name in the states, they are recognised for the impressive work they have done with NASCAR racing, competitive off roading and an array of other performance motorsports. As you can imagine, with over 30 years of experience in this highly demanding area, their products offer the best performing heat shields, exhaust wraps, heat protective sleeves and thermal insulation around. Engines and all of their components create very high temperatures and are under a lot of stress when operating at performance levels. If you have a modified vehicle, then we have the Heatshield Product to give you that edge you are after, and the peace of mind that you're covered during track days and competitions. On our website, you will find relevant and concise information on exactly what you can expect from their products, from the benefits gained, to the precise temperatures that they can take. This allows you to browse through and find exactly what you need for your specific set-up, as well as giving your car or turbo that custom look! The fully comprehensive range can be found HERE, and have a look below if you know what you're after: - Automotive Heat Shields: For improved reliability, improved efficiency and performance. - Exhaust Wraps: Retains heat in your exhaust system to create hotter gases, allowing faster flow of exhaust. - Hose Protection: Keep components cool, but also keep you moving! Shielding fuel lines can prevent vapor lock and cavitation. - Thermal Barriers: Designed to shield radiant heat, important for those days on track. - Thermal Insulation Tapes: Reflect radiant heat away from wires, lines, cables, and hoses. Reflective heat shield on one side, high-temp adhesive on the other. - Thermal Ties: Stainless steel locking ties, the easiest and best way to fasten any type of high temperature insulation. - Turbo Shields: Improve the efficiency of your turbo by retaining heat inside with a heat shield. Using a turbo bag can increase boost, reduce turbo chatter or flutter, keep the turbo from lagging. Combining cutting edge technology and constructed with the highest quality materials, Heatshield has got you covered, and with this 20% discount accross the entire range, there are some absolute bargains to be had! 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 nano particles 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's 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 sales@opieoils.co.uk. You can also drop us a message on here. Until next time, Oilman
  6. 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've 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 incorporate their award winning NANODRIVE ultra low friction technology accross the board, with black bottles and a sleek new label design. 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 are 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 an engines performance in respect of improved HP and increased torque. You can find them all below: CSS (Competition Semi Synthetic) Range - Millers Oils CSS 10w-40 - Millers Oils CSS 20w-60 CFS (Competition Fully Synthetic) Range - Millers Oils CFS 5w-40 - Millers Oils CFS 10w-40 - Millers Oils CFS 10w-50 - Millers Oils CFS 10w-60 - Millers Oils CFS 15w-60 There's also a couple of oils in this range that have been blended for specific applications: - Millers Oils CTV Mini 20w-50: Specially formulated for competition Minis and any application where the engine and gearbox share a common oil - Millers Oils COR 20w-50: Exclusively formulated for short circuit racing and particularly suited to older classic sport applications - Millers Oils KR2T: A bespoke CIK-FIA approved formulation for rotac and all high revving 2-stroke kart and bike engines CFS NT+ (Competition Fully Synthetic) Up next, we have Millers new flagship NANODRIVE NT+ Oils. 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 these previous multi-award winning products - this sets the NT+ range apart from all others in this arena, providing immediately noticable increased levels of power and torque as well as increased efficiency in your engines 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. For use in manual transmissions, synchromesh, non-synchromesh, sequential gearboxes, transfer gearboxes, transaxles and hypoid differentials, there's a full range to choose from: - CRX 75w-90 NT+ - CRX 75w-110 NT+ - crx 75W-140 NT+ - For vehicles with limited slip, have a look HERE.

  14. With summer coming to a close, autumn is just around the corner. Of course, once autumn is out of the way, we've got winter to look forward to, and we all know what the greatest danger to our vehicle over winter is...RUST! Opie Oils can help you keep the rust and corrosion at bay, thanks to our new star product, ACF-50 Anti Corrosion Formula and Corrosion Block. If you've got a car, motorbike or boat that you want to keep in pristine condition, then you may want to have a look below... ACF-50 Anti-Corrosion Formula ACF-50, Anti-Corrosion Formula, is a state of the art, anti-corrosion/lubricant compound, that has been specifically designed for the Aero Space Industry. It can be described as an ultra thin fluid film compound which must be applied on an annual basis. ACF-50 actively penetrates through the corrosion deposits to the base of the cell where it emulsifies and encapsulates the electrolyte, lifting it away from the metal surface. ACF-50 then dispels this moisture and provides an atmospheric barrier which prevents any further moisture contact, thereby keeping the cell inactive. This compound continues to actively penetrate and "creep" into the tightest of seams, lap joints, micro cracks and around rivet heads, dissipating the moisture, even salt water, in these corrosion prone areas. These unique abilities of ACF-50 remain effective for 12 months, gradually disappearing as it is chemically consumed. - Approved for use on Electronics - Non-Flamable, non-toxic - Contains NO solids - Remains "ACTIVE" for up to 12 months - Film thickness is 0.00026 - A blend of ultra-pure base stocks and speciality corrosion inhibitors and surfactants You can find further information and pricing HERE. Don't forget to use your forum discount to get an additional 10% off your order! All in all, this is a fantastic product that we are proud to stock - designed as an "all round" corrosion inhibitor that adapts to whatever task you throw at it. Available in a 13oz aerosol, 1 quart bottle (with refillable pump spray), 4 litre container and even a 20 litre drum which is perfect for the workshop. After a slightly thicker "grease" for your electrical contacts or wheel bearings on your trailer? Have a look below for the next great product from the same guys. Corrosion Block Anti-Corrosion Formula Grease It's no secret that equipment downtime, repair and replacement are expensive. It is also no secret that regular scheduled preventive maintenance is cheaper than the repair or replacement of expensive equipment. Available in a 57g tube and a 454g tub, you can view it HERE. In these days of dwindling maintenance budgets and closer scrutiny of operating costs and procedures, you can show a real saving through preventive control of corrosion. Corrosion Block can be described as a clean, clear, ultra-thin fluid which leaves a non-greasy atmospheric barrier to protect the base metal on interior surfaces. Corrosion Block leaves no gummy residue because it contains no wax, resin, tar, asphalt, silicone or telfon. Corrosion Block anti-corrosion compound is a state-of-the-art material developed for the marine industry. Corrosion Block has three superior features: 1. Superior Anti-Corrosion compound - Kills corrosion in progress - Prevents new corrosion cells from forming for 12-18 months 2. Works as an excellent penetrant 3. Performs as a light lubricant very effectively You're probably thinking "that's great, but can it isolate the corrosion byproduct from my beloved electrical circuits?" Well, yes. yes it can. As well as offering the mentioned benefits, it also has many electrical uses. Corrosion Block has the ability to remove moisture, combined with its excellent penetrating and strong dielectric properties, have brought a number of electronics 'back from the dead' with just one application. The Corrosion Block removes the moisture from the corrosion byproduct, then isolates the corrosion byproduct from the electrical circuit. Corrosion Block can be used in many different electrical and electronic applications without fear of damage. Corrosion block will not harm paint or plastic surfaces.
