    Im not too well versed on clearance issues and what not, so I am wondering if I will have any with crower 403's, 11:1 c/r, crower rods. If i am missing anything else that might effect clearances let me know. Let me know any advice. Thanx. Oh, and this is all dealing with an LS motor.

    they use clay to check the piston to valve clearance....your local machine shop should be able to do this for you or if you are having this stuff installed somewhere they can probably do it also......this is very important as a piston smacking a valve usually means bye-bye motor.
