a good mod to do in conjunction would be a set of cams but the reason behind springs is to make the valves not float with high lift cams and to provide better balabce at higher rpm's. The retainers go hand in hand with the valves and to tell the truth I do not feel like explaining it all because I'm lazy

Stage 1 cam is a waste, and stage 2+ requires tuning. Your choice ha.
