8:1, could go even lower depending on the cam. 10psi with a 6-71 is not the same as 10psi with other forms of forced induction, there is a LOT of heat gain and no intercooling.

Intercooling would be the next thing to consider, especially in this case. Getting your temps down and your density up can really make a difference.
