Stainless Steel valves

Has anyone had anything to do with PEP PRO gear?

Valves?
Collets?
Retainers?

Is $22 per valve for One peice single groove valves good or not?

$22ea is a little pricey.

You could hunt around for a set of Ferrea 5000 series one piece stainless valves for $250+ ($15.62 ea) instead of $352.

Crow cams sells good cheap retainer/collet sets to match.

Re: Stainless Steel valves

Thats not bad. What type of duty are the valves heavy or severe duty? I changed out all of mine when I bent two due to a retainer issue. I went with severe duty due to I want them to last. Valves dropping into pistons isn't fun.

All depends on your setup I guess.

Ebay I can get them for AU$220 from the US delivered.

The $250 quote was from "Performance Unlimited" in Welshpool. From Cassie, the nice looking sales lady. I couldn't believe the price! She really knows her stuff too.

That was a package quote together with a few other valve train bits (springs/retainers ets)........the more you buy, the more you save.

152 Welshpool Rd, ph: 9458 1288.

I'd have to be REALLY hard up to buy anything from Chris Mill$. He just doesn't deserve my business with what he charges for most things.

Millsy has deals that are equal to either performance unlimited or A1.Recently he has started advertising heavily in the quokka at more moderate prices than what he used to charge. Last time i rang there a chick took my call and it sounded to me like Cassie has defected to chris mills.

I think you will find both would be fine for the application. The spring pressures and revs we run, its not realy an issue. But if you have plans for large solid roiller cams and very heavy roller spring pressures, it could be a good idea i spose.

Re: Stainless Steel valves

The Ferrea 5000 series would be rated at heavy duty and the 6000 series are the severe ones. The 5000's would take a good beating on the street.

These are the same valves that are used in CHI heads when you buy a fully assembled set.

Street package ($3000) = Ferrea 5000 series

Competition package ($3500) = Ferrea 6000 series or equivalent (for Roller cams & high spring pressures).

Here's the Ferrea website link which explains all their valves........scroll down past the topfuel titanium ones Not many people here may have heard of them, but they are world leaders in valve development.

Cool. I've just moved from Perth, but next time I'm back I'll keep them in mind for the good deals then. Cassie used to be a sales rep for Comp Cams I believe too.
