Answered your other thread about the EGR and what heads are what. The P heads will likely have problems with the stock headers. Also, the stock headers are trash and should be swapped out ASAP. No better time to do it than now.
For springs... the E7 springs are barely enough for the stock cam, if you have an aftermarket cam in there they should be swapped out regardless. The Explorer springs are even weaker. You also probably don't have the right length pushrods if you just threw a cam in there and went. You have to properly measure pushrod length any time you make a change in the valvetrain.
