im using Crow springs (part #7738-16) and matching retainers (part # 11700XR8)...these springs are recommended for all of Crows EFI 5L Windsor cams from 477 lift & 203 / 209 duration up to their .544 lift & 222 duration cam...theyre a single reinforced spring and are a direct bolt on replacement

I run the same crow springs and have had the engine revs well over 6k without a sign of valve bounce. I got mine from VPW, springs were $120 and the retainers were $140.
