I'm sure there's others that make power as well but I'd just stay away from ford racing hot rod cams. A good stage 2 comp would be nice, or you can look into brands like cms, mhs, even mmr makes good cams even tho I think they're just comps with the mmr brand. As far as springs/retainers it just depends what cams you end up with and if they require them or not. When i did the stage 2 comps in the car I mentioned it also got springs/retainers, I did them with the heads still on the car, not a very fun thing to do without the proper spring tool but can be done.
