Lighter valve train components raise the natural harmonic frequency which reduces valve float.DILLIGAF Racing said:I have a 1992 Se-R and I was wondering if someone could tell me how Titanium Valve Springs could change my life? What benefits could I get from them? For that matter does anybody make them for my car?
so in that situation for example, lets say for arguments sake i wanted to hit 15,000rpm. Which stock components would need to be replaced, in order, from 6,000rpm and up. I hope that made sense im jsut curious to what holds it back.Benjigil said:I dont know what you mean about holding it back at six grand. On some N/A engines that have been converted to turbo ( ie KA24DE) , the turbo is capable of producing additional power beyond the stock redline. In such a case installing an upgraded valvetrain and thus raising the redline can make use of that power that would otherwise go unused when you bounce off the redline. Hope that clears things up.
Well if they are using Ti, thats piss poor gimicky engineering. As an engineer, Ti would be way down on my material fo choice list for a spring.Murph said:
Well, this may shock you as much as it did me, but in the December 2002 issue of Racecar Engineering there is a Ferrea ad that actually lists Ti springs.morepower2 said:Well if they are using Ti, thats piss poor gimicky engineering.

I guarantee you that no CART, F-1 or other engineering intenstive racing series use them then!
You forgot, lots of titanium.DamnedButDetermined said:From the top of my head...
Valve springs, retainers, valves, destroke the engine massively, get much lighter pistons, superb bearings, the best oil in the world, and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
