Porsche Crest 2.7 RS Mods Approved?

A few weeks ago I posetd some questions on upgrading the power of my 2.7 RS spec motor.

After a review of the replies and conversation with my shop I decided on a piston swap.
My mechanic is recomending 10.5-1 with J&E

After reading a few posts this week I see that there may be more of a concern for valve placemnet ect.

Is there less of a chance with a 9.5-1 set?

Are the Mahle's I have been reading about worth the extra $ on top of the J&E (Which will be about 1600)

I have also decided to get rid of the points and go with a crankfire type system.

This along with a nice reseal of the motor.

I was looking forward to that being a noticable improvmnet and a long lasting set up. Some posts seem to think otherwise as far as the life of the motor.

What are we talking about 10-20K or 5-10 DE events with some street driving here and there?

I realize that any hot rodding has risks.

Thanks for any advice in advance
