Valve spring pressures and power?

Hi all.. how are you?
What are the advantages of running stiffer valve springs? Do they kill the valve guides? What are the advantages of running stiffer springs?

Re: Valve spring pressures and power?

they keep the rocker on the cam... with steap profiles and wild lift the valve spring can not provide enuf force to keep the rocker and roller in contact with the cam, this causes valve float, the valve does not close quck enuf...
Stiffer springs get rid of this problem... But they do chew up usefull kw's to operate em..
The aim is to have the weakest spring you can have without risking valve float, any thing more is waste

Ok so stiff springs must add to valve train loss and power loss....How does valve float affect performance?

At high rpm.
Stronger springs will also allow the engine to rev higher as valve bounce
tends to limit revs.
