If you have just upgraded the power level of your XR6 Turbo, Typhoon or Tornado you may be required to upgrade your valve springs to help cope with the demands of higher boost levels.

With the increased power levels seen in the APS and Autotech kits comes an increase in engine cylinder pressure which affects the performance of the valve springs. Weak factory springs can see power loss in the engine as valve head loses contact with the valve seat or the valve bounces when returning to the seat. Either of these two factors cause a loss in pressure in the cylinder which causes the engine to lose valuable power.

Changing the valve springs with the Autotech supplied packaged springs will ensure your engine maintains cylinder pressure and overall horsepower at medium and high power levels. There are two different Valve spring packages for the Ford Xr6 Turbo and FPV typhoon and Tornado.

This package is suited to medium power levels associated up to 360kw on the BA and BF Falcon. This package is suited to Turbo Falcon engines that have not been rebuilt. The standard valve springs in the BA and BF Turbo falcons are poor in quality and fail to keep seal on the cylinders under higher boost pressures. Fitting the Stage 1 Valve Springs will remedy this problem and allow your engine to make power at high rpm.

This package is suited to high power levels associated with Stage 3 + installations for the BA Falcon and BF Falcon or when engines have been rebuilt for race applications. This package is suited to engines that have been modified and run high to extreme boost levels on the factory of aftermarket turbocharger.

If you would like more information on these valve spring packages for the Ford Xr6 Turbo and FPV Typhoon and Tornado, please e-mail or phone Autotech.
