Product Description

Fits Factory Heads, no machining required.

High Lift Valve Spring Kit for SB FORD GT40

Application: Hydraulic Roller, up to .550" Lift, 133 Lbs Seat Pressure

Fitment: GT40 302 heads (for GT40p kits, check our other ads)


GT40 heads require special attention when selecting valve springs for high lift, high performance Hyd Roller Cams.

Since these heads come with different tip length valves, retainers and springs from the factory, care must be taken when selecting valve springs, retainers and locks.

Unlike some of the earlier SB Fords where the tip lengths were the same for both intake and exhaust, GT40 heads use two different lengths.

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 GT40 heads. It comes with select retainers and locks designed to fit GT40 staggered tip lengths.

The performance springs in this kit fit GT40 heads without additional modifications.

Designed for mild to moderate high performance Hydraulic Roller cams, our kit will handle most cams up to around 232 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.

Suitable for 1.6 and 1.7 ratio rocker arms as long as the lift does not exceed .550".


Vsk7h48-13 offers increased seat pressure with respectable open figures at a lower price point.
