Well i will be checking them out i guess they cost me 68.50 for a set of 16 .

They will be going in a 1.6 with 79mm 10.1 forge pistons on some Carillo Connecting Rods and a boundary oil pump hope to get some rpm out of it with no valve float
and deck the head .040 as well

I think you need to do some more research, there are valve springs that fit in the BP engines that are higher seat pressure and spring rate for about the same price of the ones you are looking at and have been discussed on here and other miata forums. I am personally running these. Not to spoon feed you but look up the VS855 springs

Coil Bind Height (in):0.990 in << closer to the stock springs do to the spring wire not being round and they are beehive which yes new Retainers would be need if i did not have a lathe lol and spring seat need to be cut just .010 for the ID is a bit smaller OD is the same i made the cutter not hard to do took me around 2 hr to fit all 16 springs that was with making a cutter
