more gasket. How bad are they hitting? More gasket is your easiest solution if it is one at all. Is your cam dialed in correct? Is it just the exhaust side or both? Get a degree wheel and degree your cam if you haven't just to be sure.

There is always the backyard hotrodder approach. Take a couple of valves and weld/braze cutting edges on them and "carefully" relieve the pistons yourself. I believe they even make tools to do this. Of course this may change the balance of your engine so only remove what is needed.

OK this now surprises me. .023" down the hole, a flat top piston and the Howards cam listed??? Is your timing chain installed correctly?? Degree the cam? That isn't a huge cam IMO.. Strange
