HELP!!! Serious issue I think

So Im in the process of putting headstuds in my 6.0 i had the head sent out and deck and they had to take .012 off the the heads to get them straight. IIRC the most that can come off is .010. Any idea on what I can do to fix this without buying new head?

IIRC the max take off is .008. You're looking at a new head.

SVT is absolutely correct. You're looking at piston/valve interference issues if you run with .012 cut heads.
