Default d16y8 skunk2 camshaft

Hey, How much of a gain would I be looking at if I put in a skunk2 camshaft? Also It says the valvle springs are recomended should I get them also or does it matter much?

Depending on what stage cam you're getting, I'd still recommend getting double spring valves so you don't mash your valves at the top end.
