    Lighten valve?

    I read that you can lighten 4 tech valves instead of replacing them does anyone do this, will it save some cash and does it work. I have springs and Retainers planing to spin at 8650 or 8800 and pit h it down

    8650, you are still good with stock valves.

    Speedfreeks used to machine them but doesnt look like he does too much ski work anymore. May be worth a shot to hit him up though

    Do not lighten/weaken your stock valves!!

    You aren't even pushing the limits at 8800 rpm with springs and retainers.
