    both are good choices. for some reason ive heard about more broken crowers than skunk2's . . . its up to you. price is the real difference here IMO.

    portflow makes a good product. they are very moderatly priceed compared to skunk 2, toda etc. im using Portflow valve springs and retainers in my current setup, car runs strong, no complaints.

    skunk2 makes good products for a decent price but DO NOT buy their valves. They mushroom real fast.
