well that guy from summit said that they reccomend two different ones. one is the standard spring with a max lift of .600 and the other is a bee-hive spring, also .600 but 3x more expensive. i think the standard is just your run of the mill spring, but he said it would work anyway!!

A valve spring "good for a max lift of .600" " and used in a .563" lift cam (too far away from coil bind) .... is as bad, or worse, than a "valve spring good for .555" lift" used with that cam".... you need to match the valve train to the cam requirements, not fall short, or worse, overcompensate.
