Probably stock. My truck has the performer cam. When the engine was done I had my choice of springs to grab from the recycle yard. I went with GM beehives out of a newer series 2 V6 and those small retainers. The heads were vortecs 906 from a 97 full size. On a 85 305.

Was told the springs are the same part as the LS6.

At 1.8 IH the pressure was 96 seat and 268lbs at .442" if remembering correct. Could be off my gauges are old.

That's this Summit cam, right? Poke around their recommended parts, they recommend their valve spring and retainer kit 17400 I believe. If you're not sure, call them, it's their cam and if you don't march to their drummers specs....get it from the horses mouth.

Howard sez Seat Pressure: 115@1.700", Open Pressure: 300@1.250". Mine arent that far away, installed at 1.7 probably very close.

Edelbrock performer sprimngs 350-5703 are at 110 seat at 1.7 installed.

I was recommended vs-677 springs, which are stock I believe.

The performer package is pretty forgiving and you are not turning high rpms. Rpms are good till 4700-5000.

My post should say measured/tested at 1.8 height. Compressed further the pressure go up as expected.

Absolutely if you are not familiar go with the edelbrock complete package. Follow their intructions

Whats real bad... I never use assembly lube on the cam. Only 30wt fossil type oil. Never had any problems just frowns from hotrodders.

From my Howards catalog, the #112561 cam is very similar, and the 98214 is the valve spring recommended, so I think they'll work very well with your K1102.

Max Efficiency Lift: .426 .456, Advertised Duration: 260 268, .050" duration: 205 215, LSA: 112 Part# 112561, Recommended valve spring # 98214
Hydraulic FlatTappet 1100-5200 Smooth idle, Street, Towing, good fuel economy.

Kool thanks for the quick replies guy that's why I like this website yes I had to change my name to Greenmonoluche350 cause it would not let me log in. Now back to the main subject I was thinking either the 98214 springs or the softer 98111 springs
