    i forget the exact specs, but there are definitely turbo cams. I'm getting a mental block on whats different about them



    Titanium valvue spings (or the like) are needed to rev an engine extremely high. You stock spings can break, and above that, they arent strong or consistent enough to actually "Spring" the valve back down fast enough. Ie, there needs to be more pressure on the valve, to force it down faster. You must also be careful with some valvetrain parts that push down TOO hard, they will flatten out your cam profile and do all sorts of other bad things

    also a dual vavle spring setup is used to avoid floating vavles
    at higher RPM you need to close your vavles quiker and with high
    spring rate that can be achieved
