    You want something made from Super Clean Chrome Silicon. This is the best stuff. Look for spring prices to jump up. Supply is way down due to a work slowage in Kobi, Japan by the plant that supplies this high end wire. Lead times have gone from 4 to 6 weeks to 33 weeks.

    If you can swing them, the ISKY 9985, or the upgrade, 9985 RAD, will probably out last your motor. But don't expect them to give them to you. You'll pay for them.

    correct my choice as well Isky toolroom gold or Manley nextec...both are very very good springs. Ive run 400+ passes on both types and they check perfect, thats with .800 or more lift.

    I see you already made your selection. Good choice. For other's reading this post, here is a great source for your valve spring needs.
    http://www.psisprings.com/

    Push Rods, this is the source. If you don't see it listed, call them. In fact, before you order anything, call them. They may have something more specific to your needs. They just don't have it listed.

    We put alot of stress on our valve springs with giant camshafts both river use and racing. Really liking my PAC springs right now, Iskys are pretty amazing too.
