Higher CR with Alusil's

Im currently in the middle of a rebuild (3.0SC) and found it has Alusil cylinders, having read the 400! posts on re-ringing them I think Im going to take the chance. I would like to increase the compression of the motor (I have an 8.5:1 79 motor), I have read in Waynes book that you can offset bore the wrist pin to accomplish this (Id rather do this than fly cut the heads).

Does anyone out there have any experience doing this?
Has anyone used JE pistons in used Alusil cylinders?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated
