4G63 Valve Spring Rates and Tests

Valve spring comparison #2
Evo VIII, Stock DSM, Manley, Brian Crower


 From left to right

· Used EVO VIII
· Used Stock 4G63
· Used Manley
· Used BC1100
· New BC1100
The EVO springs, set of 16, tested 58-62 lbs @ 1.530


Used stock 4G63 valve spring Appox. 140k miles
56lbs @ 1.530


Used Manley Valve spring, mileage unknown.
78lbs @ 1.530


Used BC1100 valve spring, Appox 5000 miles
85 lbs @ 1.530 
There must have been a change in the production of the springs about 2-3 years ago. Since the used springs test stronger than the new ones.


New BC1100, right out of the box
80 lbs @ 1.530   


Part Number #160-1280

Free length 1.910
O.D. 1.110
I.D. .754
Wire size .145x.178


Closed position
pressure & Length (intalled specs)
66@1.575 Valve closed

Open position
Pressure & length Valve Open
160@1.240

solid height
1.100

The factory installed springs should be close to this also.

EDIT: I just checked 7 sets of used 4G63 valve springs, and only came up with 1 and a half sets of decent used springs.
Most springs checked between 45-55 Lbs @ 1.575
I would say a good spring should test at 60lbs@1.575, Most spring manufactures, will allow 10% loss in spring tention for spring "break in"
I used a Rimac spring pressure tester.
