Default explorer gt40 heads with HO cam?

I have read that the explorer gt40/gt40p heads had weak valvesprings. Some say they are the same at e7 valvesprings. Im not sure which is correct. Im sticking with the stock ho cam, wondering if the gt40 explorer valvesprings will hold up to 5200rpm?

Any experiences with ppl who have used the explorer valvetrain and ho cam is appreciated. Thanks

IIRC the gt40P heads have a higher spec spring on them than the gt40 heads.
