I think why you got that low was because of your deck and compressed gasket thickness values. I used values of .02 and .02ish i think to achieve around a .040" quench. Giving a little over 9:1. I got this assembly in a trade and would much rather go with a 4.25 stroker kit and am leaning that way alot more with the little compression this engine has. I feel like i would have to run a smaller cam etc with that low of comp. And thats a good thought about the heads but I just had them rebuilt and have way to much $ into them to get rid of them haha.
