    Bent Valve Spring

    So I've got a set of '07 valves and springs that I'm dropping in my '04 engine. The thing is, one of the springs is bent out of shape and can't be used. I am trying to figure out what to do.

    Should I:
    - use the 11 good springs and put in 1 of my old springs
    - use 6 good springs on the exhaust valves and use a 6 old ones on the intake valves
    - any other thoughts??

    I should mention that my set of '07 valves and springs are used, about 40 hrs on 'em. My '04 springs have about 100 hrs on 'em.
