Neat project, I'm old school with turbos. Raising static compression ratio is the last thing you want to do, especially if you are on an engine budget.
No, static compression vs. boost is not the same. A lower static compression ratio with increased boost will stuff more charge in the cylinders thus make more power than a higher compression ratio and lower boost configuration. Leave your C.R. as is, increase the boost and spend money on a water/methanol system. Old school GT's usually made you keep the engine in a power band.
I'd paint two decklids; one ducktail, one clean.
