PRI 2016: Ferrea Racing Lifts the Curtain On New Lifters


Ferrea Racing Components showed up at PRI 2016 with a spring in their step–pun intended–and showed off two new lifter products. We talked with Zeke Urrutia and he walked us through two of their most popular lifter components, the 6000 Competition and the Competition Plus.

“The 6000 Series Competition valves are designed to provide excellent reliability in an environment of high spring pressures and roller cams, at a budget price. They have higher fatigue resistance and tensile strengths than our competitor’s best offerings. These valves are prefect for Drag and Oval Track racing applications.”IMG_5752

Additionally, “Our Competition Plus valves use special aerospace quality alloys, including the EV8-Z18, which provides high tensile strength. An exclusive two-step slow forging process ensures proper grain flow and virtually eliminates any damage to the material structure.” Zeke told us.

For the past 45 years, Ferrea has been manufacturing hard core racing components for various types of engines in a wide range of categories worldwide. The company uses the latest technological advances gained through the development of engine valve programs for Formula 1, Indy Car, NASCAR, Sprint Car, Drag and Road racing teams.


This technology allows them to provide the highest level of performance and reliability for their customers. Ferrea’s association with many of the industry’s leading head manufactures has given them the opportunity to implement these race proven high quality designs for all categories of racing.

Ferrea makes components for most major OEM engines. Be sure and check out their website more details and pricing.
