Did you cut the pistons for clearance?
Did tectonics tuning grind your cams?

Pistons were cut down per Yoshifab's tool. As for the grinding, that was done by the previous owner.

With regards to the cams, there's more to it than just re-grinding the cams. The oil feed holes for the hydraulic buckets need to be extended up the lifter bore as the lifter feeds end up being a few millimeters away from the groove in the bucket.
This is actually really easy to do if you have a milling machine and a 1/8" ball end mill.

The cams were re-ground by an independent cam grinder that also does the cams for TT and a few other tuning shops. It was $175 total, I think.
