Pretty sure you end up with fubar timing long before the valves contact the pistons if the head is shaved too much. Even the 'standard' 0.030" off is enough to throw off the timing while still providing plenty of valve clearance.

This has actual measurements, though there could be slight difference's with the '95-'02 engines: http://www.differentracing.com/tech_...ine_specs.html

So finding dome type pistons is a better choice
