    What is the standard head thickness?


    What is the minimum head thickness?


    What is the most that has been taken off and still ran fine on standard cams and pistons?

    Well tbh you don't want want to chop off too much because you need a margin in case you warp the head at some point. Id say 30 thou, no more.

    There might be indicators on the head to show the limit of how far it can be skimmed... I know the block has this but not sure about the head.
