but look.... edited and found that the trick flow cam is close to the same specs but would give a respectable gain in HP in the lower more streetable range.

I have the Trick Flow Stage 1 cam w/ 1.7 rockers and AFR 165's and it cleared the stock pistons with plenty of room to spare when I clayed it.
