Elgin Offers New Valvetrain Options for GM LS1 Engines

Elgin Industries is introducing three new product offerings to its Elgin Pro-Stock line: performance valve springs; valve spring and retainer kits; and Black Ice valve spring retainers for GM LS1 engines.

Elgin’s GM LS1 beehive-style performance valve springs have outer and inner diameters of 1.29-in. and .660-in., respectively, with 105# at 1.800 installed height and 265# at 1.200 open. Maximum lift is 0.600-in. and coil bind 1.130.

Elgin Pro-Stock Black Ice valve spring retainers undergo highly advanced super-cryogenic and tempering treatments to increase component stability and wear resistance. These computer-controlled processes enable the components to attain maximum hardness, geometric stability and uniformity, and wear resistance by eliminating material stress and mass changes.

In addition to valve springs and related parts, Elgin offers a broad range of performance camshafts, push rods, valves, timing sets and rocker arms featuring Black Ice technology. These products are available through leading engine parts distributors, jobbers and retailers.

For additional information regarding Elgin Pro-Stock engine parts and other world-class performance products, please contact your engine parts supplier, visit, or call 1-800-323-6764.
