These Titanium retainers are 40% lighter than steel retainers. This means
your engine will rev up quicker an be more likely to reach maximum RPM
potential. These high strength retainers that can shave a few precious
grams off the end of the valve, spring, which is enough to add a few
hundred RPM (300 to 500 RPM) of safety margin, before the valves float.
The reduced weight means less extra heat generated by the spring and
puts less toll on the spring and rocker arms.
