I think anything over a F303 will probably hit.

once again, we will make mention of the fact that total lift has NOTHING to do with PTV clearance...


so like I said, it will probably fit, but checking PTV clearance is a must

Well anthing larger than the F303 says right in the listings to check the clearance, that is why I said that.
That seems to be your standard paste and copy response.

The X-303 is the "improved" version of the B-303...... same valve events, same duration, same overlap @.050" with added lobe lift.....even though I still have to see one that doesn't clear for PtV using Ford iron heads....... it's always best to check. And total valve lift has nothing to do with possible PtV problems.
