    Gpr gas valves way to go?

    How many of you guys are running gas valves on your GPRS and how do they compare to the oem valves?

    If you have the money to get gas valves, then do it. Reliable and faster responce than OEM as we talked about. No more linkage!

    Ditto on this, I have been running them since my first GPR, I never looked back.

    He might be looking at Riva’s pricing. I might be wrong but isn’t this what they would cost new, plus they would still need to be machined for 1300 ?

    I personally don’t do the gas valve thing, at least not yet. “If” there are gains they are super minimal.
    As far as reliability go’s as long as you have the updated PV’s- wave eater clips- and wave eater, rpm or WFO linkage couplers you should be ok. Out of 2 GPR’s and 9 years I have had 2 PV motors go out, I cant complain about that. I am not saying I will never go gas valves but as of now I cant see dropping that kind of cash on gas valves. Id rather drop it in towards something with some gains such as Novi’s,Ross throttle bodies, VF3’s, 05 pump, Jims plate, porting,ect.

    Just my 2 cents

    I'm not a big fan of the waveeater couplers, hopefully Bill has a couple extra sets of the RPMs. Do you have a link to the WFO couplers?
