Product Description

 Fits Factory Heads, no machining required.

MAX OUTPUT Drop In Valve Spring Kit, SB FORD GT40P, 7 Degree Hardware

Application: Hydraulic Roller, up to .550" Lift.

Fitment: GT40P 302 heads (we also offer kits for GT40 302 heads, check our other ads)


This is the Max Output version of our drop in series spring kits for GT40P engines.

Offered for applications which need more open spring pressures then the Std drop in kit provides.

Max Output is for use with cams between 228-238 degrees duration @ .050" and up to .550" lift. Also works for turbo and supercharged engines running smaller cams.


When selecting high performance valve springs and retainers for GT40P heads, special attention is required.


Unlike some of the earlier SB Fords where the tip lengths were the same for both intake and exhaust, GT40P heads use two different lengths.

They normally have .393" tip length intakes and .481" tip length exhausts.

Since the goal is to use the same high performance springs on all sixteen valves, special retainers and locks are required to make it possible.

Our drop in valve spring kit is specially engineered to fit GT40P heads.

The performance springs in this kit fit GT40P heads without additional modifications.

Intended for moderately hot high performance Hydraulic Roller cams, max output springs will handle most cams between 228 to 238 degrees duration @ .050".

If you need help determining if these will work with your cam, just send us an e-mail with the cam specs or better yet, the cam brand & part number and a link to the specification page. We'd be happy to verify compatibility.

Works great with many of today's popular performance cams.
