Default Z06 LS6 valve springs vs standard LS6 springs

Is there a difference? Would they work in a 3800?

Anyone have specs on them?

Where else is the LS6 available that there would be different springs? CTS-V?

The ones I see (Z06 LS6) are green, not yellow.

I think they're all the same. My LS6 springs were uncolored, save for an orange strip painted down the side of each one. I believe there are a few documented color variations for the same springs. IMO, LS6 springs are LS6 springs. I don't know why GM would build an identical motor with different springs from the factory.

Not the CTS-V here in the south side. LS6 6-spd monster.





And you can crack this VIN code:
