Sometime in early 2016, we expect to release several new High Performance drop in valve spring kits for SB Ford GT40 and GT40P iron heads.
Number one will use a brand new proprietary Max Output spring with 130 Lbs seat pressure and more open then previously available from us in a drop in style spring. Open will be around 330 Lbs @ .500" lift, 350 Lbs @ .550" lift and 370 Lbs @ .600" lift. The beauty of these new kits is they will handle much bigger cams than ever before. These pressures can be used with most hyd roller cams w/ up to 250 degrees duration @ .050" and up to .600" lift.
Number two is a brand new proprietary High Output drop in Beehive spring kit! This kit will belong to our Max Output Beehive family and will sport high seat and open pressures as well as accept up to .600" lift. Seat pressures will be in the 135 Lb range and open pressures will be in the 365 Lb range @ .600" lift. This kit will handle some of the bigger Hyd Roller grinds and well as many of the moderate profiles. As with our other drip in kit, the beehive will also fit onto the stock spring base without the need for machine work. The new beehives will be specially manufactured using ovate wire.
Both new kits will offer more mid to top in power using moderate to large cams and will also function well for smaller profiles in many applications including, naturally aspirated carburetor and fuel injection, turbo, supercharged and nitrous applications.
We won't know what the final pricing will be until all the parts become available but aim to offer kit # 1 for around $147.50 and # 2 for $212.00 Both kits will come with: Springs, Retainers and Locks to suit .393"/.481" staggered tip length valves as well as .393" tips on both valves.
Questions are welcome.

We're pretty excited about this- We're seriously thinking of having special length pushrods manufactured specifically for 302 engines w/ hyd roller cams.As many of you know, when changing cams, many times the engine will need to be fitted with longer than stock pushrods. This is mainly the result of a reduced base circle diameter used [...]
