HEAD ISSUES

1995 Ford F-150 • 4.9L 6 cylinder 4WD Automatic • 121,000 miles

I'm needing to shave this head on my truck for some compression bump. I've heard.100 off the head could be easily done. Is this possible?

Any shaving of of the head will increase compression. Taking.100 off though may allow the valves to hit the pistons however you need to check into clearances. If an overhead cam it may be an interference engine and will certainly hit.
