What are valves? Why buy valves?
Valves are used to let a mixture of air and fuel into a cylinder and allow exhaust gases to get out. Each cylinder has at least two valves each, multi-valve engines have more, often four per cylinder. Upgraded head valves are able to withstand more heat from nitrous oxide use and turbo/supercharger use, so its an excellent upgrade for people looking for added compression without sacrificing any reliability.

How do you install valves?
Valves require headwork and should be left to the pros. While replacing valves, valve guides, retainers, valve springs and camshafts should all be considered for upgrades at the same time.
