Hi Guys,

Should be relatively straightforward.
As long as the cams are installed properly and the valve clearances are good, I don't see a problem.
The stock cams shouldn't have lift and overlap issues to be a problem with interference.
If you had custom cams with high lift and duration and/or adjustable cam timing gears, then piston to valve clearance would be critical.

Whatkind of gains can be expected from high comp pistons? Would all/most of the gains be at the top end? How about cost? Thanks for any info in advance.
