IC is what I am thinking, otherwise 13'* might be too optimistic. WIll, don't censor stuff, you know we will discuss it to death.

John, when DrJay pulled his original valvesprings, they were weakened to about 70# each from 100. You'd do well to replace them with at least 100# oem'*, or perhaps 105'*.
