what is the maximum lift that the L31 vortec heads will accept? I've heard of some engine builders using cams with as much .490 lift without changing the stock springs.Is this safe?

Thought I read somewhere .480 is max "safe" lift. Some might push the limits and get away with it ,for a while. Machine tolerances might be a give and take deal?
