1 Does anybody know if the skunk2 Titanium retainers are the same size as the stock GSR retianers?

2 Are the skunk2 valve springs the same height as the stock GSR's?

3 How much do you torque down the 6 bolts on the Skun2 cam gears?

I would think that on parts like retainers and springs they would have to maintain the uniform height for the engine to operate properly. On the cam gears, I'd say until it feels like it's on there tight enough. Obviously don't pull on it with two hands until it won't tighten anymore. It should just be until it feels like they're secure on there :).

Aem cam gears recommend the cam gear bolts to be torqued at 15 ft lbs per bolt, I would assume most cam gears would be comprable, only difference is skunk2 gears have 5 bolts instead of 3.

Our springs are retainers are the same as your stock ones, but stronger and stiffer. Same installed heighth. Our cam gears have six bolts, not five. Just tightened them until all of them are snug, of 15 INCH lbs. for each bolt.
