back to topic.. (sorry guys not being rude)
I'd spring for the Patriot/PRC/whatever label is on that most popular set of dual springs rated .650 (and the extreme version is .660) over the 918s. The 918s seem to fatigue a little quicker, are expensive to get the light weight titanium locks and retainers (which the duals include), and have a worse record for breakage.
The extra seat pressure (valve control) is a plus too.
If you have 918s, I wouldn't run out and swap them for the duals, but when you get about 15-18K miles on your cammed setup and it's time to change springs, I'd go back with the duals personally.

Also to be clear, I am not calling the 918 a problem spring setup or a bad spring setup; I ran it in the past myself. I do believe you get a lot more for your money with the duals.

No dyno numbers til spring. From what I have heard, the 918's did have issues in the past but have been gone over and now I have heard of no issues with them. I will probably go dual when I do springs because when I do springs next time, a Maggie is going in and some other goodies

Personally I think PAC makes a better beehive than Comp and if I ever run a single again it will PAC. IIRC correctly PAC made the original 918's for Comp and after Comp switched suppliers is when they started having probs...
