my cam suggest these springs installed height 1.800" with 165lbs seat pressure and 385lbs open at 1.2".....................................the brand new springs that i already have are 1.98" with 225lb seat and 545lb open @ 1.4...........i know they are fine for the amount of lift but will the extra seat pressure hurt the cam? this is a solid roller cam by the way

It's hard to hurt a solid roller cam. You'll be giving up some horsepower to turn it over but it won't 'hurt' the cam.

Your springs are not rediculus and should work fine. Just make sure to use Quality Lifters (with forced oiling to the bearings) and make sure all the Geometry is correct.
