EA-82T valve springs? Upgrades?
Posted 23 September 2005 - 04:14 PM
Does anyone know the stock valve spring pressure? I don't want to shim them if I can find some other springs that will hold 10-20% more pressure.
I might have to take the spings in and compare them to some chevy or ford springs. Maybe I can get some titanium retainers to work on them too.
Has anyone tried using solid lifters in the ea-82 engines?

im guessing the springs out of the er27 are the same as the ea82s, and those dont float up to 7grand.
whats that cam supposed to pull to?

I imagine...that with springs....we could take them to 9 before the cams are effectively 'out of parameters'

Not floating at 7k is not much of an endorsement, especially for an OHC engine. RAM has springs, etc, for EA81 that people seem to use in 9k rpm engines. Might be worth looking into, but then again, stock NEW springs might allow the same.

Fixture? FIXTURE?! We don't need no Stinkin' Fixture! Just rev your engine past its redline and see where it falls flat on its face.
Cool, I think 8,000 should be plenty. I might have to make a test fixture and do some comparisons.

edit: lets say seven grand, i am having major engine problems at the moment

This engine is still on the stand and getting ready to drop into the RX. After yesturday's rallyX, and after seeing the oil all over in the engine bay, it's about time to think about installing it! Man, that was a blast!
