That looks close to what I did. Series II v6 / ls6 gm beehive springs, the small retainer, on the stock vortec valve.

It works awesome with the performer cam.

I'm not familiar with these but comparing them to known beehives such as the LS1 Hot and the many Comp Beehives from a stats point of view these look marginal for an XE275H cam, probably acceptable with an XE268H, but the 275 looks to have these springs operating right on their upper limit.

Also, these appear to me to be wound from a round wire where the LS1 and the Comp springs are ovate in cross section. For a few dollars more you can get the LS1 springs or the Comps that go with that cam. If it were my build, I'd sleep a lot better knowing I spent 10-40 bucks more for a spring that has a reputation for hanging in there when the going gets tough, I have no idea who Alex and his private label is.
