With notched pistons you can go nearly as big as you want.

The real question is how big SHOULD you go. Stock heads I wouldn't go bigger than a comp 268 or CMS equivalent. May as well do it right and port the heads at the same time and go with the Comp 270 (stage 3) or CMS equivalent.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

People run some stage 3 cams without notched pistons so.. I think you could run some really high profile and long duration cams and not touch piston. I wouldn't go past stage 4 though
