I know this is old, but i have a set of crow double valve springs sitting under my bed for about a year now and i want to put them in. I was told it was going to cost around $800 to put them in??? He said he needs to machine them. Does anyone know what needs machining or if you have any pics?

Cheers

AU springs are a lot softer due to lighter assembly..
You don't necessary get valve bounce with boost ..
It's valve float, especially on the inlet valve..
15 Lb seems the point where valve springs need some attention..
