Power-Division Beehive springs feature some of the most impressive
manufacturing techniques in the industry. Our beehive spring uses an ovate wire
which utilizes advanced material heat treatment methods for superior load loss
capabilities. What this means to you is our spring has the highest level of
spring load retention while still maintaining good fatigue threw out the life
of the spring. Only the best materials go into the GSC Power-Division Beehive
valve spring. Each batch is scrutinized for tensile strength properties,
ductility, inclusion content, and fatigue toughness.
beehive valve spring shape has become the buzz lately. Some have inquired as to
the benefits of a beehive spring vs the dual springs that are sold by others.
While some might find that the beehive spring design is new it has been used
commonly in many OE engines as well as in all of the NASCAR and F1 engines of
today. Why? The beehive shape is more stable than standard single or dual
cylindrical springs. The beehive design which incorporates an ovate wire is
more than capable of the performance demands that were previously only matched
by a Dual Springs. With the smaller and lighter retainer used on the beehive
valve spring allow for higher RPM and more valve control. So beehive valve springs, with there lighter
weight retainers allow for engine's to rev quicker and maintain a more stable
valve motion than the traditional cylindrical springs of yesteryear.
