Thread: Oversized Valves
08-19-2011, 11:36 AM #1
Quick question. Thinking of going with oversized valves (32mm Exhaust, 39mm Intake) and wanted to know if they require any additional machining to fit. Do the piston reliefs have to be enlarged as well so that the valves dont make contact with the pistons, or will they clear no problem, untouched?

+2 mm exhaust valves *should* work in stock reliefs. Intakes will need to clearanced. I dont need a point at all to run larger intake valves, they are big from the factory. Just run big exhaust valves. The seats need to be cut for larger valves as well.

Just the guy i was looking to answer this. So +2mm on the exhaust is ok but +1mm on the intake side will need to be clearanced?

lose the valve seats on the oversized or stock sized?

when you cut into the stock valve seats, there really isnt alot of material there to start with. now once you cut the seats to accomodate the larger valve you risk the seat coming loose from its pocket. it has happened to me and it sucks ass. i will never go down that road again. EVER.

so what do you suggest, staying with factory sized valves?

Don't know why u would want to put bigger valves when there are alot of guys running over 400hp with stock valves.
