Guys
anyone in here know at what point there are piston/valve clearance issues? we haven't purchased a big cam yet, so i have not way to know if there will be problems.
i have a feeling that we will be going with one of the web cams -- probably not the largest one they have, but definitely one of the bigger ones.
anyone have experience with this? i have someone machining custom pistions and they need to know if there needs to be any valve reliefs cut in them.
help is appreciated.
working on a monster motor for 08....

Thanks
Craig

I"m not speaking from experience although I'm suprised no one has chimed in as I know it's been done by a few around here. My opinion.....have the valve reliefs cut, it's just safer that way. And when you're adjusting valve lash you might not have to take the engine off tdc just to turn the cam......
