    You'll be fine with just retainers.

    Because supertech gives you springs as well as the retainers for the same price as only the retainers from Riva.. Supertech all the way. I guess supertech is wiser in ensuring it all fits and works well.

    Unless you plan on turning some serious rpm just go with the retainers, youll lose rpm with a spring and retainer kit.

    You absolutely will NOT lose RPM with the spring and retainer kit... that's yet another internet myth

    Why would you take the time effort and $$ to upgrade, and not replace the springs with the Supertech kit? Would not make any sense not to upgrade all while there...
