Tomei Titanium Valve Spring Retainers Mitsubishi EVO X 2008-2014 / Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2010-2013 ( 4B11/G4KF )
An indispensable part for any high powered, high speed engine. The combination of high lift camshafts and oversized valves will greatly increase the flow rate for fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. When upgrading the Valves to cope with the new high lift camshafts it is also a requirement to upgrade the Valve Springs to suit the new setup. High engine speeds and the dynamic movement of the valve trains mass can cause unwanted stress loads. This can cause abnormal movements such as a Valve jump or Valve bounce which can cause engine failure. The Tomei Retainers are made from Titanium alloy for added weight reduction whilst maintaining the high strength properties and precision required for the nature of its use. This will help keeping the Valves under control and secure the Valve in place during extreme race conditions.
Will work on both Mitsubishi EVO X 2008-2014 & Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T 2010-2013 ( 4B11/G4KF )
WEIGHT & MATERIAL
The strength and weight characteristics of this material showed best results during test conditions of 5,000 revolutions per minute during the load conditions from the valve spring and camshaft.
The light weight design aids with smoother operations and provides improved dynamic balancing to the valve train. The valve retainer’s precision is an absolute must to secure the valve and valve spring in place. The TOMEI precision design guarantees the optimum smooth operation process of opening and closing of the valves.
UNNATURAL VALVE MOTION
When the cam lob passes the peak point of the lobe and the valve lifter then returns, there are time when the valve spring is not capable to keep up with the large cam lift design and causes the valve to crash into the cam. This can cause the valve to jump and or bounce repeatedly. Left unattended to can lead to terminal engine failure.
When the valve closes after contacting and not staying seated the shock can cause the valve to rebound repetitively causing damage.
Due to the phenomenon of the Valves movement following the Camshaft the impact on the Cam and the Valve seat is great enough to cause damage to the Valve and there are times when the abnormal rebound can cause contact with the Piston. The phenomenon easily occurs when the motion of the Valves mass is great so attention to detail of the weight of the dynamic Valve Train is vital.
Over all fantastic. From the ordering process, to how fast the shipping is and also the customer service. This is why I only shop on GenRacer for my coupe! Keep up the stellar work

I recently purchased the ARK test pipes for my 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 and must say was the best thing I’ve done aside from from getting my aftermarket exhaust. Sounds louder and drives faster! No hassle, got the pipes within three days. Thank you GenRacer,

Most places just sell parts and when you call them it feels like you are bothering them. My last transaction with GENRACER left nothing to be desired, meaning it could have not been better. I purchased front and rear WHITELINE sway bars, front & rear DBA rotors, and EBC YELLOWSTUFF brake pads. I called just after I ordered the parts because I received an "out of stock" email notification. When I called back to chat with someone *** answered the phone. He couldn't have been more knowledgeable about exactly what I was looking for when it came to the right brake pad for my needs (street/track). Come to find out the pads I picked (DBA's) were not the best pads for my application so im very glad I talked to ***!! I just recently had everything installed, bedded the pads and I am so happy I used GenRacer for my 16 R-Spec Coupe!! Thanks again ***!!!

Order came fast and looks amazing on my car. I did have one problem where one tail light would blink sequentially and the other didn’t. I sent an email late in the day inquiring about it. I wasn’t expecting a response until at least the following day as it was so late. Within an hour they had gotten back to me informing me of a switch on the inside of the housing where you can choose sequential or regular. Sweet! Top notch customer service.
