I recently talked to Trickflow about this cam, and they said not to run the stock springs with it. They are selling the cams and springs for $600 btw.

As far as ptv clearence with the stock pistons, it will be very close if they're installed at the advertised specs.

If you absolutely do not want to change springs, then you might want to check out Bullet Racing Cams. Modular Head Shop sells them, and has Bullet grind them to their specs. They have very specific grinds that don't need a spring change. These are the ones i'll be going with, because i don't want to change springs either.

From what i hear, they're pretty good. Eveyone i've talked to, that has bought them, have been very happy. From what i can tell their prices are great too.

hitech stage 2 cam doesn't require a spring change either, you should look into them. A lot of people on here like CMS stage 2 cams but that requires a spring change. I would change the springs anyways because you will put all that money into your car and it would suck to have a weak spring break....
