What mjr46 said. Trash the factory TFS springs, and get the correct springs/seats/keepers for your cam. This should help cure your valve float problem. Boy it's been a long time since I posted here!

Is it possible, yes (using compressed air, or a piece of rope pushed into the spark plug hole. Is it the correct way to do it, no. Depending on the springs, the spring seats may need to be machined/shimmed, and once installed, install height, coil bind, seat pressure, open height, open pressure ect... needs to be verified for each valve. Others may disagree?
