I'm a noob

I'm new to the whole 12 valve then but I did a head gasket replacement and I'm trying to figure out how to tighten down my springs. Any one wanna shed some light on this?

That indicates to me you are flying blind without a manual. There is a free download and Genos sells hard copy factory service manuals.

If installing then get the tork tek tool. It works great.

Maybe do a little research first and post more information as no one know what your asking.
