Sorry its takeing me a while to get back to you on the reply ive been swamped. If it was me and im a freek when in come to horse power to much is not enouph, i would go tall dome pistons 11.0 to 13.0 to 1 comp. and a roller cam they do build more free spinning power and less adjustment time needed. The higher compresion will put more stress on the lower end but most engines are torn down and inspected every year so you shood be in the clear. I would port and pollish the heads if not already done and run a cam that will let the engine breath. If you have any more questions drop me a line.
