Rockers... What is wrong with raising the assembly for extra clearance. Sounds like your whole premise is out dated.

Weight... Now if you have not reduced your spring pressures by 30% then I guess you might see the power improvement. Holds 7000 at these lower pressures with no issue. That's amazing! I am nowhere near that. Kinda proves to me that the size of the spring means nothing, doesn't it!

Possible source of drop-in beehive springs: http://www.rdvalvespring.com/spring-kits.html Spring $13 and retainer $10
I checked and was quoted a higher price than that, even if I bought 100 springs at a time! Also, I sell my retainers for 1/2 that.
