I used Manley Race Master Series SS valves that have .290" tips and are 4.951" long.

I used those valves with Comp Cams 26918 beehive valve springs, 10* keepers and retainers. We equalized the beehives at 1.750" with 144 lb. seat pressure and 330 lb. at .500" valve lift, according to a Rimac spring tester.
