    i just picked up a set of RPM heads, bare. I have a couple questions. First: what is a good, durable, high quality valve set to have installed that'll last on the street and pro-touring, auto-x etc?

    Second question: will any mopar big block valve spring work with these heads such as the springs that come with the cam kits?

    Combo listed below:
    440 block, .030 over
    L2355 forged pistons
    Decked to .05
    Compression ratio around 9.5:1 to 10:1
    Custom cam grind with a 507/510 int/each lift.
    Torker II intake.

    If the cam is hydraulic the stock edelbrock components should be fine for that build.

    Measure the spring pocket for the largest diameter, then choose a spring appropriate for that pocket and whatever camshaft you choose. Ferrera makes a good quality valve.
