What do I need to do to my e6te heads to run a 4x4 extreme comp cam. 34-239-4 ?  Lift  .554 /.574, duration @50 226/234, and lobe separation 111

Yep ... with probably slightly longer pushrods; though they are not a part of the heads.

The pushrods will probably have to get longer because the cam has more lift than stock. The way it works is that the new and old cam both stop the lifter(reach max lift) and just about the same spot but the cam with more lift starts with the lifter lower in the bore. The base circle is ground smaller and it might be enough to use up all of your lifter preload and thus need a longer pushrod.

You might be able to get enough clearance by using a silicone rubber umbrella seal from a place like Engine Tech. They are thinner than the stock seals and that might get you enough clearance between the top of the guide and the bottom of the retainers. I think .050 would be plenty.

also I had a cam very close to this size with a set of C9VE heads and the positive valve seals did break.. would that be the same situation?

Yes. Over a certain amount of lift, factory parts start running into each other. A little trimming prevents this.

if I have arp studs, guide plates and full roller rockers on the c9 heads do I need to worry about the top of the guide still?

Also I tore down my c9ve heads last night and I Just want to be sure that cutting .050 off the guides is what I should do?

Maybe ... might be a little less or more; remove whatever you need to remove in order to avoid interference when having THAT amount of valve lift.
Figure it out ... that's part of what working on a NON-stock engine is all about.
