Product Description

Fits Factory Heads, no machining required.

High Lift Valve Spring Kit for SB FORD GT40P

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

Fitment: GT40P 302 heads (for GT40 kits, check our other listings)


GT40p 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, 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. It comes with two different sets of retainers, eight intake retainers and eight exhaust retainers.

Fits GT40P 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".

Vsk7h49-13 works with a large number of hi performance street roller cams.

These are custom made springs exclusive to Alex's Parts.
