Thought I'd share these results for anyone else that might search later on. I'm grinding in some new valves on a 99 EJ22 and I wanted to verify before I put it all together that the intake and exhaust valve springs and retainers were all the same. I checked on opposed forces and they are all the same. Basically only the stem seal is different between intake and exhaust for most (maybe all?) EJ engines.

I check earlier EJ engines, later one, EJ25's....all the ones I checked were this way.
