    You don't necessarily have to have Skunk2 brand valvesprings...I ran Skunk2 Stage 2 cams with Portflow springs & retainers with zero problems...as a matter of fact, Ian (gsrcrxsi) has my old head, and is running it with no problems (that I know of). The brand doesn't really matter...as long as you've got stiffer-than-stock valvesprings. The stock valvesprings aren't up to par with what the Stage 2 cams call for.
