COMP CamsĀ® Expands Line of Small & Big Block Chevrolet High Performance Sportsman Valves

Eleven new offerings cover the market for competition-ready steel valves

Memphis, TN, July 13, 2007 --( COMP Cams® announces the release of 11 new intake and exhaust valves in a variety of diameters and stem lengths for competition-minded Small and Big Block Chevrolet engine builders. Made from 21-4N forged high-strength steel alloy with 50 HRc minimum hard tips (which eliminates the need for a lash cap), these valves are state-of-the-art, delivering tremendous performance and durability. Recommended for all hydraulic, mechanical and roller lifter applications, these valves feature hard chrome-plated 11/32-inch stems with proprietary oil retention surfacing, not thin flash plating.

For performance enthusiasts looking for improved power, COMP Cams® new Sportsman Valves are just the ticket. To increase flow without increasing the valve diameter, high flow underhead fillet relief was designed in. In addition, the spiral-polished fillets generate a higher flow rate with reduced radial crack propagation, increasing their resistance to failure. COMP Cams® Sportsman Valves include all of these high-tech advancements, yet are affordable for any
budget-minded engine builder.
