So let's see..

The guys running cams and valves big enough to need springs like this won't buy them, because they've invested enough $$ in their engine that "budget", springs don't appeal to them. They need the best, not the best priced.
The guys running smaller cam's don't need them (and shouldn't run them, despite what TSP will tell them - more is not better!).

So who is their target audience?

Also, WTF does a dyno sheet on an engine show you with nothing to compare it to? That they're stable to 7,000rpm? whooptee-freakin do. My "lowly" PAC beehives are stables to 7k, too. Glenn's motor would make more power than that on an engine dyno, too.

At least these won't sag in 10-15k miles like the patriots do. Speaking of which, TSP claim these are the most durable springs on the market and didn't even test any springs directly from PAC... One of the few companies who actually MAKE springs.

Here's some good reading. http://www.hardcorels1.com/vbulletin/sh ... php?t=2875

you're right, i wouldn't buy a "budget" spring for my motor, even if they would work in my application. i'm running over 600lb open pressure, 1.220 installed height. i'd like to see those things not float valves on mine @ 7500 rpm. :grin

Only springs I'll buy...

PSI CT1043XL
> Dual 1.580"
> 235lbs@1.950
> 600lbs@1.250


Killer valve spring for a guy on a budget running a "man's cam" though :lmao4
