You should call Paul Kane (LakesOnly) on the boards here or go to his site www.highflowdynimics.com You can do a lot with the DOVE-C heads. I'm sure he will recommend to upgrade your studs, rockers, springs and of course push rods. Go bigger on the valves also with port work to maximize adding more lift.

Hi, anyone have any idea what is the max lift at valve for a stock set of DOVE C heads?
What springs do you have and what retainers as well as what valves and pistons ? The stock rocker will take .600" lift, I am going to be using a set on my engine for the Parker 300 this season.

I will match the springs, and retainers with the cam. They will be stock diameter, with what ever the cam specs out for. I don't if I will have to machine the top of the guides for a desent lift, under .600. I have a few hydronic flat tap. cams in mind to match my pump set up. Compression will be about 10 to 1, 10.5 to 1. Stock 8.8-9 to one pistons.

Bone stock D0VE-C heads and valve train, about 0.440" lift before you start mashing the OEM stem seals and risking retainer-to-guide clearance issues. After head mods and race setup, the sky's the limit.
