Elgin Industries has introduced Elgin Pro-Stock conical valve springs engineered for General Motors LS Series and Chrysler Hemi performance engines. The new Pro-Stock springs (#RV-107228Q16) feature a conical design that ensures superior performance and durability while accommodating the peak valvetrain RPMs associated with high-performance camshafts.
Unlike cylindrical and beehive springs, Elgin said its Pro-Stock conical valve springs help stabilize valve train dynamics and provide superior damping without wear, interference contact and other concerns. With a progressively narrower diameter from bottom to top, each coil of a conical spring has its own frequency, dramatically reducing load, increasing the spring’s peak RPM capabilities and enabling customers to use a more aggressive camshaft. A super finished surface optimizes the springs’ max lift capability and durability, Elgin said.
“Engine builders and performance enthusiasts can always rely on the Elgin Pro-Stock brand for the latest and best valve train technologies for virtually any performance engine, including the full range of modern engine platforms such as LS and Hemi engines,” said Rick Simko, national sales and marketing manager, Elgin Industries.
