Are there any other valve springs that can be used for an Rspec 3 (old ALTED stg2) other than the $250 crow ones?

I am pretty sure that selection is limited, but I know that RPD have picked just about the best and cheapest to go with the RSpec3. Just have a chat to Jaysen about it, he will be happy to help ya

do you really think it's a good idea to skimp on something like valve springs?

Blu Falc, we are trialing some different ones on my Rspec4 at the moment, after I spin it past 6000rpm at the drags a couple of times ( give it a couple of weeks), then we'll know that they should be up to the task. If not, they break, we know that they're no good.


Cheers
