try paeco, they can probably make them for you.
PAECO... they make double springs one inner spring and an outer spring and I think a bucket is needed for the double spring set-up but I am not sure about it

for double springs, the stock dual springs from mid 80's 300zx turbos look about right. havent tried them yet though.

I seem to remember someone once saying that standard valve springs from a chevy 350 work perfectly and getting stiffer valve springs from a performance shop (ie: Loper's, etc.) was the way to go.

Can anyone verify this? :?

stiffersprings will work as long as they aren't too stuff. then you end up causing needless wear and the lifters start pumping up and you also lose power to friction when they are too stiff.

I measured (With a tape :roll: ) some sbc valve springs at Napa and they are the same as our exhaust springs. The intake is a bit taller though. I don't know it that's a big deal or not but I'd rather stick as close to stock height as possible.
