Titanium is a magical material with two properties that performance enthusiasts love: it reduces weight and adds strength. One of the locations inside an engine where these attributes become highly beneficial is in the valvetrain where the valves can take full advantage of both. Ferrea Racing Components fields some common questions they receive about titanium valves in this informative video.
Remove weight from a valve by creating it from titanium makes the valve springs’ job to control what’s happening in the valvetrain much easier. The reduced weight a titanium valve brings to the table also increases the life of the valve springs. A set of titanium valves provides the benefit of being able to spin an engine to higher rpm levels safely, as well.
Ferrea Racing Components makes titanium valves in a range of sizes for virtually any application you can think of. Having such a large coverage area of products can lead to many of the same questions being asked about how users can add titanium valves to their engines.
To help address some of the common questions they receive about titanium valves, Zeke Urrutia from Ferrea created this video that addresses some of these inquiries. In this video, Urrutia provides insight into the world of titanium valves by answering five of the most commonly asked questions they receive from customers. You’ll get information on topics like what guide materials are best for titanium valves and whether you can mix stainless steel valves with titanium valves in your engine’s valvetrain.
