Spring pressure

Hello,

I have some new springs installed in my valvetrain.
The recommended pressure is 260psi closed en 760psi open

I have now 290 closed and 790 open should that be a problem???

no problem , most new springs when installed end up with a little more spring pressure such as K-Motion springs are known for this jump in spring pressure. your under 800 open seat you should be fine
