10.5:1 dish pistons? A piston sold or labeled as a particular c.r. is a WAG at best. What's the dish volume in cc's?

Moving to Basics for power estimates, you should get some answers there.

With limited information, not knowing piston compression height, etc, with a .041 gasket, 4.155 bore and the piston at zero deck, with 10.44:1. With the piston .025 in the hole I get about 9.88:1.

Here's a calculator for reference.

833.22 cc's in the cylinder
66 cc's in the head (they usually pour larger than advertised)
3.11 cc's in the piston deck height (assuming a stock block deck height of 9.025" and a stack height of 9.011") (1.433" piston, 5.703" rod, 1.875" crank radius), leaving a piston deck height of 0.014".
15.2 cc's in the piston crown
8.85 cc's in the Fel-Pro 1014 gasket (recommended by Airflow Research for their aluminum heads) 4.200" X 0.039", so the squish will be 0.053".
All totalled up- 926.38 cc's
Drop out the cylinder volume- 93.16 cc's
Divide the larger by the smaller and find 9.94:1 static compression ratio.
Be sure to drill the heads for steam holes....

Math doesn't lie, it's black and white, no gray areas.

Now, if you'll post the flow number on the heads and the part number and mfg of the camshaft, I can run the motor on the DynoSim.

Edelbrock cam retarded 2 degrees works the best. Tried several other grinds, including the comp solid you asked me to try.
First, I ran the Victor Jr intake
RPM HP TQ
2000 163 428
2500 211 443
3000 260 455
3500 316 474
4000 361 475
4500 398 465
5000 416 437
5500 409 391
6000 360 315

Then the Edelbrock RPM intake
2000 164 429
2500 206 433
3000 262 458
3500 323 485
4000 377 495
4500 418 488
5000 450 473
5500 450 430
6000 400 350

I wouldn't us the Air Gap model unless I lived in a really warm climate. The standard RPM will do the job and will warm up a little quicker on those cold Kentucky mornings.

Power is in the heads, but it's a balancing act. If you don't have a good cast of supporting actors in the mix, your star will not give a good performance.

As far as max SCR on the street, I like to be around 9.5 with iron heads and not over 10.0 with aluminum. I know there are fellows who will run more, but I would rather be conservative and be safe if I take on a bad load of fuel. If a fellow isn't smart enough to make a ton of power at 10.0, then he probably isn't smart enough to make it at 11.0 either. The more compression you use, the more cam you have to use and pretty soon, you're out of the street motor neighborhood.
