Call Wade Cams and ask them what the recommended seat and full lift pressures are.
Then buy the springs based on that.

DON'T buy springs based on the guesses you'll get here.

That's pretty poor on wades part. As for tickford springs, get a used set and new set and put them in a spring tester. How can wade/you possibly know what pressures a 200 000km+ old set of springs have?

Ever wonder why there are so many varied results for seemingly the same mods. Because you all just buy s**t and jam it in with out thought.

to be fair on wade i didnt ask for the actual pressures. i just asked what is the largest cam they do before it i have to upgrade from stock tickford springs and they said the 977b should be fine on them.

Send a message to WADECAMS and ask them for the seat and open pressures they recommend for that cam.

Crow have provided you with seat pressures only and no spring rate, You don't have enough information to make a choice yet.
