Welcome to Sabre Heads ! Not heard of me ? Well with 60 million people or so living in the UK alone, are you surprised !

I have been 'working' heads as a sole trader since June 2002. Prior to this I had been an employee, using my skills and love of headwork for my employer's benefit, this since 1985.

My grounding was 4 1/2 years in reconditioning heads at an award winning reconditioners - Taylor Automotive.

I started working at Janspeed in their headshop in 1991- Janspeed is most famous for their performance exhaust systems rather than their performance engine/head departments. I worked in the head dept. through 4 years of Nissan Japan factory BTCC Primera's, group B Alfa Romeo's, plus numerous projects for the Rover group, as in production of 6- 300hp turbocharged 1400 K series for the MGF landspeed record. The car achieved an average of 217mph using just one engine, testimony to the quality of the work. A staple part of our production through many years was the good old A series Mini, all modification levels and in hundreds. There were also- in the early days- many X flow/pinto/cvh fords etc

My K series induction came with PTP's arrival at Janspeed. Janspeed was used as a Technical advisor & 'labour supplier' for their heads and engines, much of which went to the Lotus factory. Around 500 x 135's, all the 340R's, 700 Exige and numerous others, but many- as in the 165 and 220hp engines- for general PTP sales. We also did behind the scene work for Rover, this included headwork on the now badged 'Bmw Mini' some 2-4 yrs before they hit the street!!

My biggest claim to fame during all this, was prior to Janspeeds forced closure due to financial problems(and my redundancy in 2001)- that the Rover K series based 'Vulcan' casting- as it is known (produced by PTP) is an improved casting utilising modifications I produced on the flowbwench of the Rover motorsport head(Oft referred to as a 'Vhpd')

Since becoming a sole trader, I have been enjoying the far greater diversity of manufacturers product, heads from most modern vehicle types. I have spent many hours on the flowbench, this is the fun part of job!   I don't have all the answers but I try very hard to keep improving my knowledge with the aim to benefit my customers.
