English term or phrase: increased installed height
“The old school of thought was, ‘the farther away from coil bind, the better.’ This is not the case. There are high-end race teams that run the springs as tight as .030-inches from coil bind. We have many applications that call for anywhere from .050-inches to .100-inches max,” says Manley.

Jamora says he likes to see more clearance between coils as added insurance. He recommends at least .050-inches from coil bind, but also states that more isn’t an issue “as long as you have sufficient open pressure at the increased installed height.”

Explanation:
What is Installed Height?
The installed height of a valve spring is the total height of the spring when the valve is closed. It is measured from where the spring meets the bottom of the retainer to where it rests against the cylinder head. All camshafts come with a recommended valve spring height; it is usually on the spec card included with the cam. If you follow that recommendation, you will have a spring that is not too weak (causing the valves to float at high rpm), or one that has too much spring pressure (which can wipe a lobe off the cam).
