Update June 2021: We are proud to announce our new and improved modified steel retainers. These retainers have the weight of titanium but the strength of our traditional steel; the new design weighs in at only 8 grams vs 11 grams on the old design. On a 3800 you're saving 36 grams of valvetrain weight with our new design! These modified retainers are recommended for anyone swapping to a heavier than stock valve spring. New style pictured in the product photos. 

This is an "LS" style valve spring retainer, when you install it, it will allow you to run an "LS" style valve spring. It changes the top diameter and the install height from stock. You can reuse your stock valve locks or run the Comp Cams Valve Locks. This allows us to run the more popular "LS" style beehive or conical valve springs. These retainers are required if you run any of the valve springs that you see on our website.

  • Steel: The standard LS stock replacement retainer.
  • Modified Steel: These are machined to give more valve seal to retainer clearance. Required any time you are going above .520" lift.

Comes in a set of 12.

Great parts

Very nice design and very close to the weight of my Titanium retainers but probably stronger.

Modified Steel Retainers

Recently started a new build with zzp aluminum stage 2 heads, and xpz cam. Sent a picture to Turbo Tim, and I am glad I did. He noticed the old style modified retainers and informed me of the new Modified Steel version here that are much lighter and help reduce valve float for any cam setup with a higher lift than mentioned above here in the description. Any weight you can reduce on the valvetrain will help. These are absolutely worth the money and you can see and feel the difference compared to any other retainer on the site. Thanks again Tim and zzp!

Nice part

I have had no issues with the parts yet. The seem to be made nicely and the fit was spot on. The car has only ran for a few minutes so I guess time and abuse will tell!
