    Re: 1mm longer valves

    Longer valves were used with camshafts lifts when they got over around .550" lift. Eventually the follower will want to walk right off the end of the valve tip. Preferably, you want the follower to be riding near the center of the valve tip, so the guides wear more evenly. Ask the C6 LS7 guys about whether this is important or not (lol). Also when you are using existing valve seats like many people do on +1mm valves, you could use the extra length of +1mm longer valves. What you don't EVER want to do is sink the valves to get proper spring height. As you just kill flow when you do that.

    Unless it's something secret please keep it public!

    Longer valves are common in other Engines.

    I've been thinking about this recently also.

    Curious about your head?

    Things are very quiet.

    When Todd posts.

    I listen!

    Thanks
    Randy

    PS: Thanks again for helping me out!!

    There is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor.

    Re: 1mm longer valves

    if my memory serves me right don't swirl heads use a longer valve than a G head?,mixing the 2 can lead to problems, I did this once on my first G head I shaved the bottom of a lash adjuster to make it work i needed the car, it was my DD

    You are correct Dick, swirl valves are longer.

    Thanks
