Yup. Imagine if they didn't, all that fuel that got tossed out of the airstream would sit in that second "dead" runner and form a nice varnish-goop puddle.

As it stands right now the plan is to just go ahead and wait on the b8 head because of all the trouble with the airflow, I've been whining about it for month since I did the mpfi swap and I don't want to continue whining about it in the future,

Just do it the ghetto way, take like a 17mm deep well socket and place it on the retainer, tap with a deadblow (or something like it), this should compression the spring quickly and eject the keepers. You will need a valve spring compressor to put it back together, but that will at least get you to be able to have 2/3's of the job done.

A pic with the valve out of the head. So we can see the seat well.
