Valve Spring, Cap & Platform Set


SBD have designed a new valve spring, cap & platform set for the high specification 2.0L XE engines.  We have used a special steel alloy that has allowed us to produce an ultra-lightweight valve cap, which is stronger and more durable than titanium.  We have managed to make it ultra lightweight due to the strength of the material used.  In combination with our special double valve spring and a new platform to give the correct installed height, the new set will allow for even greater control of the valve train on high performance engines, allowing up to 14.5mm of valve lift with increased durability.

We have taken all the latest advancements in technology and together with all the improvements we have discovered from our engine developments and used this to design a completely new piston for the ever popular 2.0L XE. Omega have designed a completely new forging, it has significantly increased strength over any piston we have produced in the past and great care has been taken to ensure no machining is required to the internal structure in order to maintain maximum strength. We have reduced the pin size from 20mm down to 18mm. We have been able to reduce the piston pocket depth due to our advanced cam designs, this has allowed us to reduce piston crown height to improve flame travel with the combustion area and yet still maintain optimum compression. The total weight of the piston has been reduced by 25g over the original slipper piston and the total weight is now down to 307g for 87mm bore, this includes the rings, pin and circlips. The 88mm piston weighs 314g. The 86mm piston weighs 298g.

To compliment the latest XE slipper piston, we have designed two new con-rods; one to suit the standard XE crank dimensions (26.35mm big end), which uses an L19 ARP bolt, the second version has a narrower big end (23.80mm) specifically designed for our 2.0L crankshaft and supplied with 625+ ARP bolts. We have managed to increase the overall rod length to 149mm due to the new smaller pin size of 18mm and because we have been able to move the pin closer to the crown due to its smaller diameter. At the same time we have also reduced the overall deck height to allow the standard block face to be machined to ensure perfect accuracy across the top of the block. The rod also incorporates the latest designs for improved strength yet is still lighter than the original design. The two rods weight 510g for the standard width big end and 490g for the 23.80mm narrow rod.
