    Review & Install Video

    So COMP Cams Beehive valve springs we're taking a quick look at today are going to be a great option for any of my '96 through '04 two-valve owners out there that are thinking about getting into a hotter cam, or might actually be in the process of tearing into their motor. Install-wise, depending on if you're pulling your heads, which I would definitely suggest doing, you're looking at a full three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter here, and easily a day's worth of work. So I can't stress it enough here, guys. If you're going to be doing cams, you're going to have to get into a set of springs, because it's going to help your motor reach its full potential. With a 0.550 maximum lift, these springs were designed specifically for the modular motor to help you get increased valve train stability, as well as a much lighter valve train. So keeping factory springs and throwing an upgraded cam in and wringing your car out can cause your valves to float, because they essentially can't keep up with that upgraded, lifted lobe. So because these springs feature a higher rate and have a unique construction, they're going to be able to accommodate that higher-profile cam, without running into the issue of floating a valve. Now, when you float your valves, you're essentially keeping your intake and exhaust ports open at the same time. If that sounds bad, it's because it really is. So that can kill performance. It can hurt your brand-new cams. You can bend a valve. You could drop a cylinder. A lot can go wrong here, guys. But talking about that unique Beehive design a little bit more here, guys, this spring is going to drop weight significantly over your factory equipment. So these were made to reduce moving mass, which is going to result in a lighter retainer as well. Now, this is going to let you push your motor higher into the RPM range, which ultimately is going to result in you getting that much more power up top. Now, expect to be spending about $180 to $200 to get these onto your car. I can't stress it enough. It's an absolute must. Furthermore, you should definitely pick up COMP's retainers as well, just to ensure that you're running at 100%. Install-wise here, guys, this is a full three out of three wrenches. That's no surprise here. Expect to be wrenching for about a full day, maybe even over the course of the weekend. Now, this is something that's going to absolutely require the entire toolbox. I'm going to throw it out there that you should have the Ford Service Manual there as well, just to make sure you've got all your torque specs and patterns when you're buttoning everything back up. So at a glance here, guys, you're going to need to pull that intake manifold. We're talking valve covers, spark plugs, crank shaft pulley and a damper, and a ton of other components here. Now, if that sounds labor-intensive, guys, it's because it is. I, honestly, would not have any issue taking this to a speed shop to have them installed. That's just me, due to the fact that this is going to be a pretty labor-intensive job here. But if you're looking for a good challenge, this can absolutely be done in your garage. So that's going to wrap up my quick review of COMP's beehive valve springs, fitting your '96 through '04 Mustang GT, which can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Ask a Question

    Do these springs only work with comp cams or do they work with other brand cams?

    CARLOSH

    • These springs are compatible with other brand cams but to ensure proper fitment we would recommend staying with the same brands.

    Can you use the stock retainers and keepers with these springs?

    ShelbyM

    • We do not recommend using the Comp Cams Valve Springs Beehive with the OEM keepers and retainers. These should be installed with new keepers and retainers for safe operation of the valve train.

      Waste of money

      Bought because comp cams recommends them and am said they need to be installed when I did my stage 2 cam swap. My stock springs were just as stiff and took just as much force to compress. Very little difference in stiffness. They were about a sixteenth taller than stock side by side and coils were thinner so unless your going high lift I don't recommend them. My stock springs would have worked fine and it was not worth the time it took to install.

      Easy to install with the right tools definitely can tell there strong. Upgraded cams comp recommended it. Theres a reason. Make sure tou get the retainers with it as well. Steel will work fine insurance for future. Make sure you take your time.

      Must have

      These are a must have when getting new cams! Have to upgrade the valve springs these worked great and fit great or that's what the shop said. Got the comp cams 270s they are sick but must upgrade few other things as well as this and it's worth it all! Not a big HP gain the cams and all but to get the cams and everything installed along with these it was around $1100. Definitely recommend!

      Comp Cams Valve Springs

      Very nice product, and quick delivery! Was an easy install, but my heads were off. So no special tools were required except for the valve spring tool, and a magnetic small flat head screwdriver to get the keepers out while pulling the stock valve springs off.

      Awesome, but get the right tool for the job.

      Springs are great, but just make sure you grab the right tool for the job if you're going to put them in with the heads still in the car. Ford makes a valve spring removal tool, thats special and unique from any you'll find in a store. I'd link it If i knew it were okay to do so. Either way, these are the springs to go with, or get your heads pulled and get a valve job ect while your at it, specially if you're installing some tasty comp cams..
