    Those should be the good PI heads with additional spark plug threads.

    This is with an aftermarket cam set if you thought i was referring to stock. So basically the question is what is the best aftermarket cam for a npi motor with pi heads and npi pistons

    Do yourself a favor, just go ahead and intake valve relief the pistons. Then you wont have to worry with clearance with any cam. Most cams can get away with about a .060" relief.

    You could deck your npi heads at just about any amount and still run a nasty cam without reliefs. Remember, its the compression bump, cam, and intake swap that makes the pi swap desirable.

    Modular Head Shop has some information on there cams in regards to how much lift/duration is on certain cams and which set ups may require piston notching and may have piston clearing issues.

    Sweet thanks guys im taking on a project motor and am thinking TEA-PI2VF heads, Comp Xe274H cams, Accufab 75mm elbow and throttle body, Hooker Super Comp Headers and have yet to uncover what i need as far as management and ecu needs. But hopefully the crank, pistons and the block are in decent shape and i wont have to buy to many expensive parts (college budget)......
