The completed seat pressure is less cause the inst ht is 1.8 , these numbers are +/- bad testing equip. Got me a ball park and went with it. Have no cash, sometimes you have to experiment.

GM part numbers for these components are 10166343 for the valvesprings, and 10166344 for the retainers.

Summit headers 89 , and the fit is great. Nothing hangs down.
Aren't those retainers and locks for a 8mm valve? The springs could work but I don't think the retainers and locks will.
