If your going to be spending your money on a cam/valvetrain setup, look no further than bisimoto, check out the writeup/cam review they did recently (ik its around this forum somewhere) , the gains from the bisi cams were MILES past all of the other cams tested (which includes your 59300) I am shopping for a 2.4 my self

I've got a 59300 matched with Comp springs and S2 titanium retainers. Oh, Supertech vales too. I've got no preference as you can see, and this combo has been working well for me. I would suggest though using springs matching the cam you get.

Brand matching isnt necessary. You have to look at the actual specs of the spring set to see if it matches with your camshaft. But in general, most SOHC cams arent that aggressive so that most aftermarket valvesprings out there are sufficient to combine with each other. But still, make sure the valvetrain you get is a good enough for the requirements of your camshaft.

yes brand matching isnt necessary but most novice diy engine builders dont know about seat pressures and installed height and coil bind at .xxx of lift and what not, so its easier to tell them to buy the spring brand that matches cam brand so its cut and dry you know they will be fine
