Research & Development Services

for the Performance Motor Industry & Race Engine Builders

Piper are the specialists in prototype and small batch high performance camshaft design and manufacture.

To complement our camshafts we offer a complete range of:

  • Cam kits
  • Adjustable vernier pulleys
  • Performance valve springs
  • Spring retainers
  • Timing belts and chains
  • Followers

Piper Cams have been designing and manufacturing performance camshafts and exhausts since the late 1960’s. Continuous investment in state-of-the-art machinery has kept us at the forefront of profile design. For some years now we have utilised CNC cam grinding equipment to complement our CNC workshop facilities, all of which allow us to hold the very closest tolerances.

Due to continuous expansion in early 2007, we relocated to our new 25,000 sq/ft factory in Folkestone. Further investment in an air conditioned inspection department means that we can now offer the very best camshaft/valve train analysis/design facility in the UK.   

Our CNC Landis machines will grind not only cams for use in Le Mans, WRC, Touring Cars, NASCAR, Indy Car, British and European Rallycross and Hot Rod, but also most of our fast road profiles as well.  The same in-house design facilities and CNC machines are used to produce our huge range of performance road cams to the same exacting standards and with the same amount of success. This means the superior quality of our cams will be available to everybody whether you drive a NASCAR or a Nova!

Motor vehicle manufacturers are continually producing new engines, making them lighter and more efficient. Our continuous research and development programme keeps us at the forefront of engine development. We achieve phenomenal results by using modern design methods, developed in a competitive environment, to produce cams that not only offer the best performance but the best longevity as well.

Piper Appointed Distributor for Cometic Gaskets

For more than 40 years, Piper Cams have been making performance camshafts for virtually every level of motorsport from grass roots clubman level right up to and including Formula 1, WRC, NASCAR, 24hr du Mans, WTC, Indy Car and Paris-Dakar.

Naturally we are proud of our achievements and reputation for offering the highest quality products, so when we were asked to become appointed distributors for Cometic Gaskets, we were keen to associate ourselves with a company that shares the same ideals and pursuit of perfection.

Cometic Gaskets have been established for around 17 years and operate from a 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing centre, located in the heart of the American Midwest. Since its inception, Cometic Gaskets has been committed to producing superior quality gaskets for the high performance motorsports market.

Cometic Gaskets manufacture a range of over 5000 different gaskets. To provide consistent performance across such a wide variety of engine types and sizes, they manufacture their gaskets from a range of materials. Whether the situation calls for the latest in advanced technology, like their MLS (multi layer steel) gasket or a synthetic blend such as Aramid Fibre, you can be assured that Cometic has the answer.

Cometic Gaskets are now in stock and available for immediate shipping - a full listing of what is available from stock will be appearing on the website very shortly. If there is a particular gasket you require, please ring our sales team on 01303 245 300 who will be happy to help.
