in need of PI SWAP help

ok so heres my situation,

i bought some Romeo PI heads off ebay, thinking they were complete. well they were except for that they didnt have valve springs or retainers. My question is, can I use my valve springs and retainers from my NPI heads? If not, can someone point me in the direction of a site that actually carries these? im having no luck finding anything stock. im not wanting to spend hundreds of dollars...

Well ill look into that but honestly im sure you can find comp retainers and springs cheaper and have them installed just incase u wanna put a stage 2 cam later. If anything ask a head shop how mucg they would charge u to put in valve springs and retainers

My only recommendation is to call a performance shop around you who works on mustangs and ask them.
