Cylinder Head Decking

I know this is a subject that has been beat to death but want to double check on a couple things before I do it. Just pulled the head off of my 06 and was going to have some minor port work done and have it decked. Was thinking of taking .015" off the head and running the .045 head gasket. Running the stock 08 intake cam and stock 06 exhaust cam. Also was thinking about running the stock intake cam on exhaust side (if worth it). I know ill have to pin it. Stock springs still in the bike so wont be raising the limiter or spraying over a 30 shot on the bike. Also not sure if anyone knows if the gen 4 stock springs are any better. I have a spare set from a previous head I assembled and if there any better then I will reassemble using them. Thanks

Born with that MAD KAW DISEASE!!!!!

.015 deck, .45mm hg good power mods, ptv ok with good degree. gen 4 springs will not work. can shim stk. ex. spring .030 with stk. cam but added lift of 08 cam or int. on ex. will not allow shimming stk gen 2 valve springs due to coil bind. either setup should work good.
