I really need some help on valve spring choices with the nitrous. I have been spraying 82HP on stock springs. I know, crazy.. But.. I am doing it with a progressive controller, window TPS, speed enabled, window nitrous cut out before shift, direct port with 2 maps... DRY shot. I hear APE duals break, don't know why (installation error or other?). The weak link is the aluminum retainers with heavy springs. Some don't like Carpenter, some hate KW, not sure about APE. Gathered spring info:

The KW 40-40500 come with steel retainers and are a single spring, the same for both intake and exhaust.
The KW 40-40250 have Ti retainers, so the pressure is less. Not a fan of this one as the stock Kawi is more with lighter spring retainers.
APE is the same, basically as the KW 40-40500 but with less seat pressure.

Any experience with springs and NOS?
