Hi guys,
i'm new to this forum, i need help on choosing the right v/springs for my set up.
it's a bit complicated so i will have to make this a bit long.
i'm fitting ITR cams in a b16 a2 head, the spring in this head is :inlet dual with yellow paint marks on.
exhaust dual with blue paint marks on.
i also have another set of dual intake springs which came off another b16a head, not sure if b16a1 or 2. this set have green paint marks on.
i need to know if any of you guys out there know those valve springs by their color.
so i will know which ones to use.
i will also tell you what i was planning to do in order to help myself.
i was going to use the yellow ones on the intake side, and the green ones on the ex side.
please advice.
thanks.

<---In for the answer. Dunno what the paint marks are

I will suggest just gettin ITR springs to match the cams. Thatll help your valve control.

Or by the way I will recomend getting a new set of Supertech valve springs and retainers or Crower valve springs and retainers for your ITR cams....that way you know you safe....
