Mines only a 2.0 TS and I couldn't get any OE springs unless I bought the whole caliper, so I got a pair of Lambreta brake springs from ebay, which were the right size and strength and passed the MOT. Measure the distance when the return is at rest/off between the 2 points where the springs sit. They do need to be fairly strong for the rolling road brake test. Maybe you will be more lucky with V6 calipers, you could try Autolusso. If not you will have to do what I did and buy an alternative or buy new calipers.
