I have a delima I am putting in a spartan cam today but my 6.1 valve springs won't be in till next week has anyone ever ran a cam with 5.7 springs for a couple days and gotten away with it I just need to turn the car on and make sure it runs and just let it idle but I don't want to hurt the car

That doesn't make sense. If you're going to install the springs in a few days, why wouldn't you just wait and do it all at once?

Because I am very impulsive and don't have patience lol
On a side note even a broken clock is right twice a day. It could be ok Or you could break a spring,drop a valve and wipe out the whole short block or even the whole motor. So I ask you,Do you feel lucky punk?
Save yourself labor and headaches. Wait and do it all at once. The cam does you no good if you can't go out and stomp on it, and with the stock springs you will either putt around and have no fun, or succumb to temptation and break something...

Yea I have to agree man. Do not do it. I am very impulsive as well but I have learned restraint for the better of my car. I hear you on wanting to run it with your new cam but it may not end up working out for you in the end and then your gonna have to wait a lot longer than a couple of days to hear it run.

I'd wait, catch a ride to work for a few days and not gamble on the chance of messing up your engine. BTW - Are you just upgrading to 6.1 springs and not the pushrods with your new cam? I thought proper insurance coverage for a 5.7 was both!?!....6.1 timing kit wouldn't hurt either while your at it....

Yeah Im doing the rods and springs and I did the 6.1 timing set when I had the cam out. I'm just gonna suck it up and wait the couple days I swear waiting for car stuff is worse than waiting for Christmas when we were kids
I would just wait and do it right. I also can understand just wanting to here it run. Good luck with your cam install.
