    so i have my car all apart and its time to put the valves in should i use skunk 2 high compression valves since im running stage skunk 2 cams and valves springs and retainers, are they benfits from using these valves?will i see more power?
    im running stock bottem end and i know the more compression the more the cams perform, any answer will be helpful thanks

    Valves will gain you a LITTLE bit of compression, but not so much that you'd really notice on the dyno. If you have to replace your valves or just want to spend the money, get the Skunk2 valves. If not, just put your stockers back in. I did some digging real quick and found out that the valves decrease your combustion chamber size by about 1.5cc, so you'll probably pick up a half point of static compression at best. That might be worth 2-3hp at the wheels if you're lucky.

    Like I said, if you have the money to burn, do it. It's WAY cheaper than ripping apart the block for new pistons.

    Intake and throttle body don't do anything for compression- you need to decide how much you want to spend or do.
