If I were you, I'd slip in 9.5:1 pistons and whilst you've got the top end apart, put on some C2T head gaskets to drop the C/R even further to ~8.8:1 and you will be able to run 0.85bar (intercooled) all day every day for ~485 crank HP
Question: How do the C2T gaskets drop compression? I had these fitted and my heads were cut to accept them?
