COMP Cams Sportsman Valves are available in a variety of materials, diameters and stem lengths for street and competition engines. The stainless steel valves are made from 21-4N forged steel alloy with 50 HRC minimum hard tips (eliminating lash caps); these valves deliver tremendous performance and durability. The hard chrome-plated 11/32” stems utilize proprietary oil retention surfacing. For extremely high revving LS applications, COMP® engineers developed titanium valves. Weighing 35% less than stainless steel, titanium valves are a must for race applications where valve float is not an option. For high temperature and high boost applications, valves constructed from Inconel superalloy are also available.
