    I have b18c1, and Im putting in JUN valve springs and retainers and skunk2 stage 2 cams (whose specs are almost exact same as JUN Stage 3). I was just curious if these springs are going to be too stiff for the cam lift ??? and possibly damage a valve ?

    just use the Skunk2 springs
    or do you already have the JUNs?
    if they are similar cams then it should be fine

    Why would you wanna use the JUN springs when the skunk2's are less expensive? You must already have them.

    Make sure that you use some upgraded valves. The stiff valve springs can cause the valves to break the head right off under extreme use.

    the only time that the valve head is subject to spring tension is when the valve is closed and resting on its seat. nothing slams into it.
