you need valve springs or that built bottom end will do you little good. When you start turning up the boost it will actually start to push the valves open. So you need them even if you dont swap cams or plan on turning more rpms.

stock valve springs are fine with boost as long as stay with stock redline. if you raise the redline that is when you will need valve springs. and fel pro gaskets are ok except for the hg. use a motorcraft or cometic mls

when you take the windage tray off put a wooden hammer handle in the block so the crank will hit it
