1. None of them are hollow stems unless they are custom ordered that way. Hollow stem valves is not done as much today, as it was back in 1967-69 when the 427 Ford racing engines had 3/8" stem stainless steel valves and it was an effective way to loose weight with those thicker stem diameter.

2. Personally I like the Victory 1 titanium valves, and my friend Phillip Oakley likes the Manley titanium valves. We just have a difference of opinion, but it's not worth arguing over.

3. Del West cetainly has a good reputation also.

4. Xceldyne came into being as a new company after Carl Vickers (CV Products in North Carolina) dumped Del West and quit being their sole distributor.

5. Trick Titanium does not have the number of dealers or warehouse distributor network that the other companies have. I do not know who is a dealer for them.

Hope this helps,
Charlie

Nick,

Maybe I can explain myself better by saying,,,, it's six of one and a half dozen of the other. The main point is that either one of them, Manley or Victory 1, would be better than stainless steel valves.
