anyone have any experience with crower valves [1mm+ overbore], retainers, and springs? I'm going to install them on my car with HKS camshafts. I heard crower cams can break easily do to their grinds and how they aren't manufactured by machines like HKS, instead more by humans. I've seen a lot of crower cams broken at the shop. I was just wondering what you guys think about their valve train... i was going to use HKS valve springs, but their weights aren't enough even though they say they work with HKS cams.. Ferrea valves are a little more then I can afford. I'm using this for a boosted vehicle.

I use Crower valvetrain in all of our cars..I recommend highly :thumbsup:

I also have numerous vehicles running Crower cams; none of my Customers or I personally have ever broken a Crower cam..

My 2 cents :D ..
