Do y'all think 400 is good for a stock 2001 top end?

Also, being a newb to wrenching....Is there anything I need to look for when buying a used setup? is there any way I can check pistons without removing them?

Thanks again for everyone's help!

400 seems high
The 1200 heads are not that good until the 04s came out
