Product Description

New Items # GT40p-393 or Gt40p-393-A
Stainless Steel Exhaust Valves for GT40P & E7
 
SB Ford GT40P w/ .393" Tip Length
 
Purchase is for eight exhaust valves.
Select between two versions: 1.450" or 1.460"

  

These Stainless Steel valves were custom made to our specifications. We produced them with a .393" tip length instead of the stock tip length of .481".
 
If you're ordering a spring kit from us, we can provide the parts to fit either .393"/.481" or .393"/.393"
 
When ordering a spring kit at the same time as the valves, we'll provide the spring kit to match the valves purchased.
 
If you already have one of our spring kits for .393"/.481" tip length valves, the fix is to change the locks on the exhaust to the same type used on the intake. If you need help ordering the correct locks, simply message us and we'll send you a link to them.
 
GT40P-393 is used to replace the stock valve. It's head diameter, face width and overall length replaces the stock exhaust valve very well and is intended for the "do it yourself-er" who is familiar with lapping valves. This valve uses the stock head diameter of 1.450" and has a wide enough face to contact the factory machined exhaust seat. If you try to use the 1.460" exhaust valve on the factory machined seats, the seat contact surface would most likely be partially hanging off the bottom edge of the valve face due to it's narrower face width and .010" bigger head diameter.
 
Please note that lapping new valves into used seats only works when the used seats are still in very good condition. Some heads will have worn out seats which lapping alone might not offer a suitable service life. If the used exhaust seats show allot of wear, they should be machined as is done during a valve job. The 1.450" valve can still be used for heads getting a valve job also but will not have the same flow advantages as heads specifically machined for the 1.460" valve.
 
For those who will be taking their heads to a machine shop, they'll want to order GT40p-393-A (1.460") This valve has a slightly bigger head diameter and a special narrow contact face width which the machinist would cut or grind the exhaust seat to match. This offers improved flow over a wide valve face. The improvements are similar to wide face valves which have been "back cut" to a narrower width. Since the 1.460" valve is manufactured with a narrow face, back cutting is not possible as it already has the desired narrow face width.
 
  1. Order GT40p-393 for those changing exhaust valves without machining the exhaust seats.
  2. Order GT40P-393-A for heads going to the machine shop for a valve job. Your machinist will machine the new exhaust seats to fit this valve.
 
Be sure to give the machine shop the valves so they can machine the seats to your valves. Anyone doing precision machine work knows they need the valves in hand to set up the proper seat widths and locations.
