Ferrea Performance Valves
For all of your all out competition needs from a 9000-RPM Nascar engine
to a Top Fuel Dragster
offers the finest titanium valve on the market. Their extensive
R & D facility is constantly implementing new designs
and processes, which continues to keep you in the forefront
of engine valve technology. They manufacture each valve by
forging a piece of special high-temperature titanium alloy
with silicon (This high-temp. alloy is considered a "special
upgrade" by our competitors; however, it has been standard
in all our exhaust and some intake valves for years). The
valves then undergo an extensive heat treatment and stress-relieving
process to ensure molecular integrity and prolong the valve's
life. Each Ferrea titanium valve is meticulously machined
in their own precision CNC machining center where it must
pass extensive quality control procedures. All of our special
processes provide maximum performance and reliability, affording
longer life in today's professional racing engines
Super Alloy... THE NEXT GENERATION
OF VALVE TECHNOLOGY
super alloy valves... represent the highest level of
sophistication in valve technology. Ferrea proudly introduced
the next generation of extreme heat resistant valves,
specifically developed to withstand the brutal punishment
of NHRA Top Fuel and Funny Car applications. They have
developed a specially processed high nickel-based alloy,
and a unique heat-treatment process, which yields extreme
heat resistance and enormous tensile strength properties,
(far beyond conventional Inconel materials).
These extraordinary valves will set the
standards for all Supercharged, Turbo charged, Nitrous
Oxide, Off-Shore Marine or 9.0 compression restricted
race motors. Many Top Fuel Dragster and Funny Car teams
can confirm the performance and reliability of these
new valves which are now available for many engine combinations
including NASCAR, Sprint Car, Drag Race, and Off-Shore
Ferrea has expanded
their offerings for the Top/Fuel and Funny/Car applications
with a Super Alloy Valve available for every after-market
head in both 11/32 & 3/8-stem sizes.
They are also reaching a fast growing
segment in the Import Cars with the introduction of our
New Super Alloy Import-Tuner Valve program. These valves
are specially designed for use in racing engines that
are subjected to extreme exhaust temperatures such as
turbo, nitrous, or supercharged racing engines. No other
valve on the market has been designed specifically for
these applications. Once again Ferrea is setting the
Plus-Sodium Filled Hollow Stem Valves:
Sodium Fill-Hollow Stem Valve is a sophisticated piece
in which they combine their manufacturing process that
gun drills and micro polishes the stem with the addition
of a specially formulated sodium into the hollow stem.
This combination achieves both weight reduction in the
valve train and a better dissipation of heat from critical
areas in the engine.
Plus - Hollow Stem Valves:
important factor to take into consideration to increase
the engine’s RPM's, is the valve train weight.
Of course, the valve being a main component, the design
has to be perfected to accomplish the weight reduction
to allow higher RPM's.
Ferrea's latest contribution to this area
is the introduction of its Lightweight Hollow Stem Valve.
They developed a manufacturing process
that gun drills and micro polishes the stem to achieve
a valve reduction in weight of 20 percent compared to
a conventional stainless steel solid-stem valve.
The valves also feature friction welded
tips, radial grooves, avionics chrome plated stems, seat
hardness up to 42 HRc and super flo to improve flow design.
Competition Plus Valves have built a reputation as the
industry's most reliable extreme duty valve. At Ferrea
they are dedicated to providing the absolute best product
on the market.
Their extensive R & D programs provide
technological gains, which are implemented in each of
our competition plus valves. They are engineered for
high rpm, high horsepower racing engines, and are chose
by many top NASCAR, Drag, and Oval & Sprint Car-racing
To manufacture the valves they use special
aerospace quality alloys, including EV8-Z18, which provides
high tensile strength. An exclusive two-step slow forging
process ensures proper grain flow and virtually eliminated
any damage to the material structure. The valves are
then heat treated and stress-relieved over a 48-hour
period, which is the crucial base of our molecular integrity.
These valves feature avionics-quality hard chrome along
with a specially applied hard tip. The engineering staff
at Ferrea spends countless hours conducting flow bench
tests to achieve an optimum balance of flow, velocity
and efficiency in the design of this valve. As a result,
these valves incorporate smoother radiuses and unique
undercuts. These exclusive features are what make the
Ferrea Competition Plus Valves unequaled in performance
Ferrea is once again setting the pace
with its Competition Plus PQ Series Exhaust Valves, the
next generation of exhaust valve technology.
Due to the evolution in today's competition
engine applications, temperatures are increasing and
as a result, longevity is decreasing. Therefore, Ferrea
is pleased to introduce our NEW! Competition Plus PQ
This is a next generation exhaust valve made of an Ultra High Strength,
High Temp Nickel Stainless Steel Alloy. Ferrea first used this material
with great success during the development of a very high stress,
high temp endurance racing program.
This PQ Series next generation exhaust
valve material will progressively replace Competition
Plus Series valves as applications evolve and the material
Listed below are
some qualities of the Next Generation Exhaust Valve
Tensile strength increased by 20% at high
Fatigue resistance increased by 20%
Valve seat life increased by 25%
Series Competition Valves:
6000 Series Competition Valves are designed to provide
excellent reliability in an environment of high spring
pressures and roller cams, at a budget price. They have
higher fatigue resistance and tensile strengths than
our competitor's best offerings. These valves can be
used in Drag and Oval Track racing applications.
To manufacture the valves, Ferrea uses
an exclusive two-step slow forging process using EV8
stainless steel on both intake and exhaust valves. They
provide a special heat-treatment and stress relieving
process, along with hard chrome stems and friction-welded
hard tips. Ferrea finishes with a swirl polished head.
The valves feature flow improvements to deliver the power
needed for today's sophisticated racing engines.
Series High Performance Valves:
5000 Series Valves have become the alternative for performance
engine builders that use our competitor's "street" or "performance
valve." These valves are produced in our CNC centers
allowing tight tolerances and cost-effective design.
They feature a one-piece forging made from stainless
steel, a special heat treatment process, hard chrome
stems, and hard tip. Most applications are available
in an undercut stem and dished head, while other applications
are available in straight stem and flat head. These valves
provide our customers with maximum value for their dollar
and are designed for Street Performance engines, mildly
modified Drag and Oval Track applications.
