Anyone know if Berilium valve seats installed for using Titanium valves would be compatable with stainless valves ? I realize they are softer.

Interesting, a lighter valve so assuming it doesn't hit the seat as hard, hence the use of a softer material valve seat. Is this supposed to promote longer life of the valves themselves? Other than that i dont understand the point of using anything other than normal.

Titanium is stronger and lighter, but not as hard. Hence the copper berilium seats.

Just pony up and run titanium valves in it :D I actually considered doing exactly that on the new engine until I found out how much they cost They're only about $85 a piece. :eek:
Yeah I know....EEEEKKK!!!..I don't run enough RPM to warrant them.

Actually, the seats are installed in a brand new set of Brodix 2+ Alum heads I have for sale.
