Default Valve question

Are Ferrea valves worth a damn?

Cause i need to buy a whole new set of valves for a motor and im needing some sevear duty stainless valves. Well i found some on ebay that a speed shop is selling for $250 a set for all 16...but will they handle 7Krpms?

yea thats what im thinking.. No the manley works, just tryin to save some bucks. But im starting to think im just gonna buy the manleys...im with you, im not really trusting the valves. Ive heard of Ferrea, i just never had any feed back on them as with quality, etc.

there descent but i don't think they would suit ur application with the rpms u plan on turning. if they have a heavy duty series i would try checking into those.
