Can anyone confirm for me that these are double valve springs without a dampner?

I put these on the car a while ago and there's a chance that one is busted so i'm going to go for some Isky springs, doubles with a dampner.....Crane was a bad choice

Cam is a custom turbo grind, reground a TFS1

Do you have a cam card for the turbo re-grind cam? It should tell you what seat pressure and spring rate you need...

If you've got a broken spring you will definitely know about it.

Get a good quality spring that meets your seat and open pressure requirements, and you should be laughing. Doubles with a damper isn't going to make a difference if it is still the wrong seat pressure and spring rate.

Yeah got all the specs, the springs were bought and put in when the motor was NA ages ago and just didn't think of changing them when i went forced/regrind cam etc cause i didn't think they'd pose a problem

cheers
