Default Stage 2 cams

Ok, I'm about to do a PI swap in about a month and i want to go with stage2 cams. I am going to buy bare heads, and need to know the best place to get the valve springs and stuff for the stage 2 cams?
I've been considering this: http://www.americanmuscle.com/patrio...t-9904-2v.html

If your going to upgrade the springs comp beehives FTW.

Are you sure you won't have PTV clearance issues with a NPI motor that has a PI swap and the stage 2s?

You will FOR SURE have PTV problems if you do not get the pistons fly cut OR degree the cams. I did the exact same thing and screwed up all my pistons.

Not sure, I ended up getting a new shortblock built with fly cut pistons. I know to degree them you need to use a degreeing wheel and a lot of patience. It seemed like too much of a pain in the a$$, plus, I needed new pistons anyway, so I just paid the extra $200 to have the valve reliefs machined in. Somebody else should chime in and give a link on how to degree cams. hint, hint.
