The stock 3.0LSC @ 8.5:1 rating is 180HP.

Here is what the chart says, your engine running 9PSI has an effective compression ratio of 12:1. This is high for any Porsche air-cooled engine and you were in esteemed company, with only single plug, cast pistons and plastic manifold. BTW did this one fail? The problem is its fixed compression ratio.

Very impressive basically stock motor, I’d like to hear your definition of a modified motor.
