Head Studs/Valve Springs
I think it is almost time to pull the trigger on the last of the upgrades for some hybrids and I have a few questions. I plan on doing head studs, valve springs and push rods (Amongst a few other things). What I would like to know is...
Head studs get torqued down to a value higher than the stock bolts right? If so, what is the proper torque on heads studs?
Also, I have been looking at the Comp 910 springs (92lbs at factory height)and planning on them for awhile, but then I saw the ones on Swamp's site that are supposed to be 99lbs at factory installed height and it got me second guessing. If you have specific recommendations on this then I am all ears. If not....those of you around 500hp or running 238cc hybrids w 80% or 100% nozzles, especially with a 38R, how much boost are you seeing? I know boost isn't necessarily going to be the same for everyone, just trying to get an idea.
