    Did not go with the MS4. Doesnt sound like you have read up on it very much, kinda just picked it out maybe? Read up.

    Going to need a double spring

    Use the 'old' Crane spring tool. SpeedInc sells them, they work great.

    I did my homework already

    I asked about the springs because comp, patriot, precision race components etc. make double springs, cause i know with a high lift cam .649/ .609
    u gotta change valve springs more often.
    i was curious who might have used what springs with more mile intervals, had better luck, etc...after researching cams for the last 3 months ive deceided the ms4 is the way for me!

    Patroits seem to be very common and have a nice price.

    ok but what does ur power band look like? that cam is not good for a stocker at all even with a ls6 intake u cant get the right air to it.. for n/a set ups with a lil n2o it will be good because of where the power is and how long u stay in to it in each gear

    We all have our own limits as to what is streetable.
    To me, 4000 stall isn't, but to you, it is. All in the perspective.

    But yeah, I will be replacing my valvesprings at 15-16K with my cam.

    got a bud with one, he daily drives, he goes through m6 trannys like you wouldnt believe, maybe driver mod? idk. also it barely idles, it dies regularly, maybe he needs a tune and maybe make the hole in the throttle body valve bigger to raise the idle rpm.

    if you do this, upgrade heads, rods lifters springs get headers ls6/fast intake you'll need some ca$h bud

    I've researched the MS4 for a few months, and I'm definately going with it. You will most likely need a good dino tune after the swap. It won't be as bad with an M6 as an A4. Definately add a rebuilt tranny into your budget. Mine is coming out and heading off to tick shift next week. As for the springs, I woul call TSAP. I have heard nothing but good things about their support, and they won't sell you something that will break. They know they'll get flamed on every LS forum out there.
