My guess probably isn't very meaningful, I'd say 325-350, 99% of which comes from the 9psi supercharger. The rest of the stuff isn't all that impactful to be honest, especially while still running the stock heads.

Agreed. Way too much cam for stock heads. Buy heads and it will be a night and day difference.

Any suggestions on good heads that will clear ptv without issue
The PTV has more to do with the cam and valve diameter than the head. Since you have a Trick flow cam, it's natural to suggest a Trick Flow Head. A Trick Flow 170cc head will definitely work. A Trick Flow 190cc 11R will probably work too. The question is definitely somthing worth directing to Trick Flow Customer support directly. I think the Stage 2 cam was designed for the old 185cc heads. Call them and work it out. Just be honest, and tell them you put a cam in that was way too big for the heads. Honesty always gets the best advice.

You can either get a head matched with that cam, and fly cut the piston, or get smaller cam to match the piston. For what it is worth, 20 years ago we would fly cut the piston with the Lunati fly cutting tool while the engine was still in the car.

Just putting bolting the TF 170cc heads on will be a massive improvement.

For sure is be honest, no shame here. I'm proud of that car. Built it from nothing to something with just these 2 hands can't wait to get new heads. I know the stockers will clear. Just have to direct to trickflow like you said. Ones I got 400-450 rwhp I'll be a happy fella

A can of playdoh is 50 cents at Walmart. Trust but verify.
