Actually, the valve pockets I referred to, are just under the intake and the exhaust valves. These areas are somewhat restrictive as cast for performance applications. Ford casts them on the small side to increase velocity for low end gains I think and they end up being somewhat restrictive.
The chances that your current heads have had this step done already is excellent, as the ports look nice from the pictures.
Your pistons that you have in your short block are the EFI pistons (a common use for them as they raise the compression in the earlier applications) these work well for the mild builds with low overlap/duration fairly low lift cams.
As for your C6's it sounds as if you have a Lincoln Continental version (the longer version) these have angled transmission mounts in a "V" configuration.
