alright, for you DIY guys...what valve spring compressor do you use and where did you get it? im looking for one, because the one ive always used on my v-8s is too big. i need something small enough to fit Honda valves. what price-range am i looking at?

SEARCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Someone on here (or sohchonda) suggested the one from Adavnce Auto, squeeze the retainer holder togther and grind the fingers, worked great for the ZEX cam/spring install, head still on motor and in the car!
