Re: stainless valves(maniac you out there)

Hi ! Well in my opinion i would NEVER run the comp cams valves. Manley are a good valve but the HP doesnt really take the valve into consideration its the cam and the springs and the RPM you use. As for flow testing its not a problem Pm me and ill get it done. Im using somoene elses bench atm.

Ferrea also are an excelent valve. I used them in my Yates deal. Never had a problem at all. Manley and Ferrea both have a good range.
