    You shouldn't need to replace them for rockers, but if they are stock, I would consider it. If you decide to turn up the rev limiter, the springs might float out the valves. I use the comp cam bee hive springs. I also have a big cam with 1.8 SLP rockers.

    i just put scorpion 1.8 on my 2000 trans am and yes they float at 6000rpms so i replaced them with 1.7 and still float at 6000 but there ok up to 5500 rpms. i have a jet stage 2 module added that makes my auto transmission shift at 6000pms .should i get new springs or can i tune it to shift at 5500rpms with a hand held tunner?

    more than likely your springs are causing the float. i cant answer the handheld tuner question...but hp tuners can adj your shift points

    I thought everyone on here says you can't go any bigger than a 1.7 rocker when using a big cam?

    you are still pushing the limits..and stressing the valve-train...6k is not very high ...and depending on your cam..you will shifting out of the meat of the powerband so you dont float...id get better springs and enjoy
