Anyone changed heads on lightning block?

Hello, I picked up a 351w SB out of a lightning. Has anyone put diffrent heads on it? I'm looking for a head that won't have interference w/ the pistons. My cam has .480 lift. Thanks everyone

I am a huge fan of the Trick Flows. My friend put the twisted wedge heads on his lightning with a mild cam(dunno the exact lift).

When you pull off your stock heads you'll see the pistons have a nice dish to them allowing decent sized valve/cam combos. I haven't switched mine around yet.
