just kidding

i would listen to these two guys they have already proven them selves on this site time and time again of thier knowlege

just a question from me, with him wanting his pistons to go just above the deck @ TDC, wouldn't his CR be rather high and be in possible danger of hitting the valves before they close + plus posibly hitting the heads and the higher RPM he wants to run?

i could be wrong
You can run them above the deck, but you need a thicker gasket to compensate. You still want .040"ish quench distance and the compression and P/V clearance depend largely on the cam chosen. Really running them at 0 deck is about the best street option.
