i just wanted to know where you ordered them from cause im getting a 6.1 soon hopefully and want to get new springs at the same time, cause im only 18 and i can not take any chances with anything in the engine

...yea...the cool thing about a 6.1 swap is that all that is involved is the cam swap itself, no need to reprogram the pcm or any other adjustments....

you will need to talk w/ beast2 about the retainers though, talking w/ my dad he said that you need to keep them matched. i dont know all the spces on theim if you can mix the 6.1 retainers and the stock valve keepers or not. so you might want to check w/ him.

BTW ill get that email out here in a few.
