i havent decided on a piston yet as i can get the afr 245s with a 70 or 80cc chamber and im waiting to hear back from some ppl running the 245 heads with the different chambers to see if i should get the 70 or 80's
other then that i need to come up with a cam and then ill be able to start assembling it

im going to run a pair of 70 or 76mm turbos on this engine should be able to make 1400/1,500 hp pretty damn easily
Where do you want to be for compression.

On your build I would go to a .904 lifter to reduce the pressure angle of the lifter.

With the tall deck I would have gone with the DRCE-3 oiling at no charge and gone to a 55MM cam which makes for a much better profile, You can't get a big enough base circle cam LOL.
