This auction is for a brand new set of 16 Supertech
Dual Valvesprings and Titanium Retainers for Honda/Acura B18A B18B
Non-Vtec Engines commonly found in the LS Integra. Aftermarket
valve springs are made out of superior metal alloy's and optimized spring
rates to make sure your valve train can keep up with your cams at high
RPM. Whether you are rebuilding your engine, or building an all out race
engine, replacing your valve train with Supertech components will allow
you to rev higher, and go more aggressive on your cams.
There are 3 Major Issues with stock valvetrain, that can be prevented by using Supertech Components.
Supertech has been around for a long time in the
Valve train industry, and has race proven their product year after year,
and backed it up with world records and first place trophies. We use
Supertech in our top level engine builds for good reason. We suggest
Supertech Valvesprings and Retainers and actually use them in some of
our very own cars.
Valve Float - When we rev our
engines higher than they were designed to rev from the factory (which we
often do when racing), sometimes the factory springs may not be strong
enough to fully pop all the way back up and close the valve between
rotations of the cam. This makes the valve actually stay open during the
combustion stage of the engine cycle, leaking compression out of the
engine, and losing power under load.
Coil Bind and Valvespring Failure
- Factory valve springs are made from cost effective materials that will
survive normal driving, usually the entire life span of a unmodified
car. The factory did not account for enthusiasts when they chose
materials which is why it is common for high mileage factory valve springs to crack or break when put through the abuse of racing.
High RPM, increased compression, aggressive cam profiles, and other
factors can cause valvesprings to permanently bend out of shape (coil
bind) or even break and drop into the engine (spring failure),
potentially causing irreparable damage. Supertech valvesprings are
made from carefully chosen alloys to stand up to the worst abuse.
