Default Cost to benefit: oversize valves?

Mild build up of a f22a. 86mm bore by 95mm stroke, bisi stage 2 cams, and 12.1 pistons and more, those are just the basics.

Now anyways, bisi just added new valves you can buy on their site. +2mm intake and +1mm exhaust. That seems TOO big for a street motor but other than that the only other option seems to be +.5mm valves. Does a motor like this really NEED bigger valves? Or would i just be throwin money away for nothing? I havent really seen a lot of people mention going bigger on here, and some even swear by the stock valves with just a valve job.

Any opinions welcomed, thanks!

Default Re: Cost to benefit: oversize valves?

how high are you planning on revving? you might benifit from a larger valve if your going to rev to 9k and only need power up top.

for a street engine...well unless you work it into the design the gains will be almost nil.

Now say if you had plans on maybe adding a bit of juice down the road or something then its a different story

My builder said i could safely go to 9k... but i will mostly keep it to a 7.5k - 8k max. With its long stock stroke im really hoping that it will be more of a very streetable torque monster making good power in a usable RPM for cruising but also with the pistons and cam make some good top end.

Guess they arent really worth it for my application. I figure if i end up re-sleeving and boring out to 89mm and go for broke with that 100mm stroker crank i'd benefit more.

When Honda designed the K24, (86x99), they went with 36mm INT valves. Just sayin.
