Post compression on my 383

i have a 268 cam in my 383 with about 8.8:1 compression. im not so sure on all of the specs but i think the cam is the "comp cams" and if i was smarter when i got my motor i would have gotten all the specs to go along with it. but do you guys know what compression ratio i could go up to safely (pump gas) without running into valve clearances? would upping compression be wise to get more power right now? im sure you need to know everything else my motor has but i'd thought i'd ask first before listing....thanks in advance
