What exactly do retainers do? Is it worth getting titanium ones during a cam swap, or can I get away with the stock ones? I know titanium is strong and light weight, but how much of a benifit are they in a cam?

well, retainers do just that. retain the springs. the valve locks connect it to the valve. the less weight you have, the less chance of valve float in the upper rpms.
