Default iron eagle 215 help

I recently bought some new iron eagle 215 castings , my cam specs call for a 1.950 installed height spring . This i gather means a valve with a .100 longer than stock stem. My heads take 2.05 intake and 1.60 valves. What valves work best with these heads . i'm thinking about ferrea 5000 series valves , but this car will be rarely street driven and this motor is going to be set on "kill" at all times. Any help here is appreciated
thanks in advance

5000? set on kill? The cheapest set they offer and when they fail it will be Ferrea's fault?

Get a set of Ferrea comp and stop with the cheap. The valves and the springs are your best friend period! You could miss with cam and pushrods but the other 2 will keep the grenade intact.

Didn't know they were the cheap ones, or i wouldn't have posted this thread. I appreciate the input , i went to thier site and if you don't know what your looking for it's a little confusing . Almost lost a motor years ago because of crap springs, don't want to skimp on valves or springs . as a matter of fact the spring that broke on me at high rpms without setting the "grenade" off is sitting on my desk at work as a good luck charm as i was quite lucky that night!!

Harry go with the Competition plus Ferrea and run some PAC springs. Cost a little more but way less than the engine.

I'm a little thick skinned to be taking offense to such things, no worries. I've been outa racing quite some time and just getting back into it and so much has changed so with some things i'm still a little lost. Thanks for the help

Roller Cam, Ferrea 6000 Series, or Manley Sever Duty, I'm assuming its a Roller at 1.950 Installed Height. Make sure your springs are set up proper to work in conjunction to the coil bind specs or you will have early valve float.

Whats wrong with valve float??? It's the landing that messes everything up...

Mine floats at 4200rpm.

Small world, i bought my crank from you off ebay! and yes i'm using a big howards roller cam. Iam planning on going with kmotion springs also. And i found out with that installed heigth i'm going to have to go with .100 over valve stems .looking thru the ferrea catalog i figured i'm going with the f6104's on the exhaust and the f6114's on the intake
