With a stage two you had to do get the stiffer springs right? It is normal for them to make more noise. Not being able to hear yours I don't know how much louder yours are. Proper adjustment, as stated before, is crucial too.

Stage II+ cams will increase the noise due to the ramp rate of the lobe profile, not to mention the increase in accelerated movement (throttle response).

If they are adjusted right I am sure you will still have very noticeable valve noise.

Just my $.02
