PI Swap ?

have a 1998 GT with a Romeo engine. gonna do the PI head swap but have a ?. I'm using 99 Windsor PI heads and stock 98 bottom end. 1 of the 99 camshafts looks pretty much burnt and 2 lobes have flat spot. Figured I'd upgrade the cams to 99-04 stage II cams. however, according to MMR site using the 99-04 camshafts in the 98 block would require piston change to notched ones. are the piston to valve clearances that tight with the head swap?

I think the answer is "yes", but there are others here who can tell you definitively. Check over at modularheadshop.com, I am pretty sure that they make/sell cams specifically for PI swapped NPI engines.

All the usual bolt-on's /200 I6, C4

And a few Explorers too... 2008 4.0 XLT 4x2, 1996 XLT 5.0 4x2, 2003 Sport Trac XLT 4.0 4x4
