Thanks Mark,

What kind of gain would these give over a standard PI cam?

On modular mustang racings website it says that the notched pistons are required for the stage 2 and higher cam. Its the only place that I have seen were it says it is required, is this necesary?

no. if the cams are properly degreed, they will be fine.

The only place I have seen where valve reliefs are needed is when a lot larger valves are used. TEA stage II heads have bearly larger valves and dont require reliefs, but the stage III heads require them with 270 cams. I am sure mark is going to go agianst this remark. But with stock valves you will not have any problems.

Seriously though, i've had manley and ferrea oversized valves, comp 270's and i've always had MORE than enough clearance. I still say someone didn't know how to degree an OHC engine too well

He has put in more then 20 sets of cams/heads in 4.6's. He didn't have any problems putting them in stage II TEA heads same cams I sold mine to the guy. It reads on TEA site that you have to cut releifs for comp 270's with stage III heads. MAybe if he had of taken the advance out he would of had clearance but he never had any clearance to degree the cams. So I dont know I know you have built a lot of engine and have a lot of knowledge on engines. So maybe you could have got them to work.

What valve sizing does TEA use in their stage 3 heads?

I had a set of TEA ported heads years ago, (junk). These used ferrea back then. I wish you luck with those heads, hopefully you don't have any valveguides come apart
