Yes you can get away with it . You will probably have to do some small modifications to the piston's though . I have a friend in California who uses Vortec's on a 377 , with a 9cc domed SRP piston , and he has no problems . I think that he rounded off the square spark plug boss in the combustion chamber also . The engines that I use the Vortec head on are flat top engines , so I'm just relaying what my friend has done .

FWIW, Keith Black now makes a pop-top piston specifically for these heads. Next claimer I build, I might just try a set.
