Make sure you replace the valve springs with either the TFS or Alex's, as the stock ones are too weak for even the stock HO cam.
i heard a few different things about the gt40 heads and a flat tappet cam, 1. valve springs are too strong, 2. valve springs are ok to use with a flat tappet cam . i honestly have no idea what to do now as far as valve springs go
