Notch Pistons for twisted wedges?


Somebody told me that i have to notch my stock pistons for the twisted wegde heads to work since they have an offset valve so they need to be double fly cut is this true? and if it is whatt are my options for heads without having to notch my pistons?

no, the fact theyre "twisted wedge" is why you can get the 2.02" intake valve to work with stock reliefs. Your friend is a retard

Always check PTV but TW will most likely work w/o fly cutting but always check. What cam are you going to run?

I was told I can run TW with the TFS stage 2 cam and still be ok. most people on this forum know this guy and he is far from retarded.
