speed pro forged pistons

as in the ones that comes in summits fel-pro engine rebuild kits.

anybody use any that can comment on their experience with them? i have a hyper. set for a 351w sitting on a shelf and the look good, but haven't had ran any in an engine.

also does anybody know if they have enough thickness to them for flycutting for valve clearance? I'm not running a "wild" cam, but if i need to do some clearance will i have much to worry about?

edit: also i plan on having the deck milled for zero deck height. what would be the best way to determine how much to have removed?is going off of deck height-piston height-rod length- half of the stroke the only way without having to partially assemble the engine to measure?

They are a good piston. There is no way to tell for sure what the deck height is without mocking it up. Get a old rod and have it honed out so the pin will just slide through for checking your deck height.
