These are really cool! I came across these while visiting the shop. They are "not" for our hemis, but it just shows what it takes to run a race motor at high revs without dropping a valve

they are completely smooth at the top when assembled together. The valve stems need to be shorter since these caps add height!

...Can anyone guess what this Intake Valve diameter is? This message has been edited. Last edited by: MrHemi, document.write(''+ myTimeZone('Sun, 04 May 2008 17:00:24 GMT-0700', '04 May 2008 08:00 PM')+''); 04 May 2008 08:00 PM

I figured those were the ones you were talkin about Jay!

Since we're on the subject of valvetrain...

I'm told Ferrea is Jumpin on the bandwagon and producing the dual spring for our Hemis. Srt10kllr mentioned this before, but now I know who is doing it! They are also engineering valves with beadlock stems .......I've already decided to go this route since I don't want to risk dropping a valve with the stock locks.

......unfortunately, they're not on the market yet, so I'm paying triple price for them.
