There is a bit more to piston choice than just the heads, although they do play a big part. What are your plans with the motor. ACL's arnt bad, but you can get better for a similar price

Flat tops will normally give you the best burn, so if you can achieve the comp ratio you want, and the valve reliefs are in the correct spot/big enough, then they should suit what your looking for.
