    Manley Severe Duty Pro Flo valves. About $22 each instead of $110 each for titanium.

    Make sure you run some good springs and you should be fine.

    Stainless valves will work fine for that rpm with the right spring. For a bracket car, where you want hundreds of passes out of parts, the stainless valves are more durable and will last longer. Also, check into Si valves, they have some nice stuff for the money, and a lot of choices

    I would think rpm capability before valve float would be the difference. JMO
