    I'd double check myself.
    Built a crate L31 for a friend and the valve seals hit the retainers around .460" of lift on some valves. Also, maybe wrong, but the heads need to be drilled for internal coolant bypass. When I set a old style head gasket on the new vortec heads there is a coolant bypass from the waterpump passage that is not drilled on the vortec heads. I drilled them out so I didn't have to run an external bypass from the waterpump to the intake.

    We ran the GM "hot cam" kit in that motor. I has a .525/.525 roller cam with about 218/220 @.050 duration. Had to open up the spring pockets and machine down the stems for clearance, that was only $50 at the machine shop.
