what is the absolute max you can take off the deck on a 4.6 before running into cam timing issues?

Most you can take off either the heads or the block is .010" I've seen some go to .012" but that was because the heads were melted so bad, they had no choice...To be safe though, go with a max of the .010" Otherwise you run into problems with the length of the timing chains...

Randy Stinchcomb said basically the same thing. so i'm thinking the consensus is .010".
