Valve spring compressor

Anyone have a recommended valve spring compressor for the fa20?
Im going to replace my valve stem seals. Currently have Ferrea 6000 +1mm valves. I've done them before on other engines, just need a good recommendation for a tool that works well on the fa20.
Thanks!

I'd get the tools they use for the recall. They're pretty sweet.

Are the heads coming off? If not, the factory tool, as ultramaroon says, is nice.

I figure head goes face down with a little piece of cardboard under the dome. Still better than those vice-grip things.

That gives you options. Old "c"clamp style will work in that case also.

The c clamps are a pain. My favorite tool to use was a GM special tool, 2 towers with a bar across and a lever to press down. 5 minutes and they’re all off.

Can’t find a picture of the actual tool, the towers were really nice milled aluminum. Plenty of aftermarket sets out there that look the same.
