Happy Thanksgiving all. So I am building a 460, got a ATK short block, and I got my hands on some speedmaster aluminum cylinder heads. Has anyone ran these heads? Will it bolt up with a stock configuration? What I'm basically asking am I gonna slam a valve into my piston or is there enough clearence?

You have not provided enough info to answer the question unequivically. Who ever is assembling the engine should be checking piston to valve clearance. Having said that if you are using a typical street cam with under .600" lift and a .041" head gasket you are PROBABLY going to be fine assuming the piston has suitable valve reliefs or dish..
