    WSM Valves...

    Hi, I have to rebuild a engine of 1503 4tec 215 and would like know if somebody have experience with WSM valves exhaust valves.

    I have seen they have two models Normal (with nitride treatment) and race series (maybe stainless steel??) I guess i would buy the normal one... because is cheapest and i have read stainless steel is not too good for diferent material causes with temperature... (not sure about it)

    I know that WSM is not the best quality of the world and would be better go oem or another high quality like riva or supertech but in this case I don't want spend a lot of money and obviusly if they work good for some time is enought for me.

    So just would like to know if they work good or they really are rubbish. Please... people with experience (himselft or friends) and not "my cousing told me that hey are...rubbish.."

    Thank you in advance guys!

    the problem with used oem set is that you dont know if they are '04 valves that fail...

    About fail valves... just was used in 215? could I mount a '04 185 valve set? or probably they have same refence and will fail again?

    Thank you

    for something like a valve, it's a false economy to try to save a few bucks, even a few hundred.

    you want to be a couple of miles out when one lets go?

    trust me, you'd burn a fat stack of 20's to avoid that happening, especially as that thunderstorm suddenly changes direction

    Umm they are marked with part number, just get stocks that are not the ones that fail.
