I use that type of spring compressor and it works better than those ones that try and clamp the spring itself to compress. I had horrible luck with a "Blueprint TBI" 383 engine i purchased with the same smoking issues. They used World Product Sportsman II heads and from the factory the valve guides were way loose and it used about a quart of oil every 400 miles and was fouling plugs. They wouldn't warranty it saying that there were no defective parts. Anyways I purchased Trick Flow heads and had no further problems and i think you are fine running Vitons on both intake and exhaust, I did and never regretted it.
