No you dont need springs, but i would get them anyways, you got a cam that, when tuned will edge out a little more than 7k RPM...Safe to say it will make good power to around 7,800 RPM...

Just out of curiosity, is there any company that makes springs that are specifically for mild cam upgrades? I personally am not going to run a wild cam in the SOHC I am piecing together, and running stiff springs will just put more wear and make it harder for the engine to rotate, thus lowering power output. Soooo . . . Anyone have any ideas?

I didnt get the springs when I first put my cam in. I still to this day dont know how it happen, but I bent 4 vavles in the head. Im not saying the cam did it, but its the only thing I could think of.

phearable will do a good job with a map. Maybe not like a professional dyno tune, but it will run fine for you.

I love my stg. 2 as well, but I'll be going to stage 3 in spring/summer along with ITB's, headwork and valves. For now, I'm working on my tranny build.

Good luck!

I recomend looking into the winter 06 Engine Masters magazine. there is a article about "valve training" in it that i think you would find really good.

How about using Crower Ti-retainers with fresh stock(OEM) springs? That's what I would propably do with stage 2 cam. Those retainers are 'bout half lighter than stock, and much stronger.
