Valve Springs??'s

I just picked up some heads and want to start getting them ready for my next build. I'm considering a High rev kit from Hypermax, but I'm not sure it will be needed. I'm looking to build reliable power as a daily driver and towing.

Would a Beehive be a better route to consider? Where should I look and does anyone have part numbers? I called comp Cams and crower and prety much got nowhere. They want spring pressures, sizes, diameters. So I'm thinking they don't have a spring truelly built for our applications.
Websites??

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
Shawn

Comp Cam 910-16 is the part number for drop in springs. They are 96lb springs and stock is 76lbs. I know quite a few that run them as well as I do. I got the part number from Bean.


Look here for some serious reading about this subject:

Which Springs? - Powerstroke Nation

These pics have the part numbers for the behive springs if you want to go that route. My Truck pictures from cars photos on webshots

strokin are you running the 910-16's?

Is it worth the extra money and efforts for the beehives?

Interesting reading thanks so much for the info. It's much needed.

Do you have any thoughts on Valves stock or aftermarket?

Thanks again
Shawn

I am running the 910's as is Bigrpwr. Lukecline us running the beehives. If bigr is running the 910's, that is good enough for me. BWD built his engine for racing.

Most say that stock valves are just fine. I am currently running stock valves and my built engine will have stock valves as well.

Keep Strokin',

Howard, what about keepers and seals all stock also?

I think the 910's will work great from me also.

I really appreciate your input

Other than the springs, everything is stock. I did mine in the truck. I pulled the springs out and put the new ones in with the stock keepers, seals and locks.

If you are doing them in the truck, make sure you read my posts on PSN, it will give you all the tricks. If you are doing it on the stand, then it is gravy.
