Everything I have found so far says that there are problems with piston clearance on the 86 5.0 when doing a head swap. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced head that doesn't require modification of the pistons?

man... I used to know this...

I think maybe the World Windsor Jr's are safe for the flat tops for that motor... maybe the gt40 heads as well. maybe the 165 AFR's... I'm really just guessing, but I did have a list at one time of what would work without swapping pistons.
