Shouldn't be a problem. I know plenty of guys pushing 150 shots repeatedly on bone stock 5.0L shortblocks in fox body cars.

stock 5.0 motors have forged pistons, stronger than hyperetic pistons. 5.0's will easily handle a 150hp shot all day. you better get another opinion and be sure.

If the top ring doesn't have at least .030+ end gap on that KB piston I wouldn't spray it at all. I personally wouldn't use a hyper piston in anything I planned on spraying, I've seen them lift the top without running the jug....they hold a ton of heat.
