Yeah, it does seem pretty hard to get that. I know the compression was low so that is why I went with a .015 shim gasket and hopefully achieve at least 9:1. I believe the double pumper would be overkill unless you are actually at the track all the time. The motor is in a 76 620 Datsun truck and I'm figuring 20% drivetrain loss which with your estimate would put around 280 at the wheels.
