piston to valve clearance

Hi everyone,
Im in the middle of swapping my camel hump heads to some new aluminium heads, Im keeping the magnum 280(480/480) cam, do you think I will have any piston to valve clearance issues with installing the new heads?

The camel humps had 1.94/1.5 valves the new heads 2.02/1.6 valves.
The pistons are flat tops with 4 valve reliefs.
I wish I had checked with clay before torqueing heads down!

Thanks in advance
