    werd definitely replace springs and retainers first. either OEM ITR or aftermarket.

    it's not a nessecity to change out the springs and retainers with Type R cams assuming you are staying with the stock B16 redline of 8200. Any higher, then at least Type R springs and retainers will be needed. I suggest going with the valvetrain upgrade so you can rev out the Type R cams where they like to be revved to :)
