how will a stock bottom end sbc handle 11.5 to 1 compression

i have a 327 with a stock bottom end. ive installed cam, intake, aluminum heads. the issue is with 64 cc heads it was at 10 to 1. now the heads i went with are 58cc n im thinking my comression is around 11.5 to 1. this bottom end is just a temp. parts holder but how will stock rods, crank etc hold up? if not pushed to hard wil it hold?

Chevrolet built 327's with 11.00:1 static compression ratio many moons ago and controlled cylinder pressure with camshaft timing events. I don't think it's the cylinder pressure that will do you in as much as it is excessive rpm's.

Comp ratio

If the parts stated are in good condition higher compression won't hurt anything as long as you don't get into detonation. I don't think your CR is as high as you think...more like 10.8:1. Run 91 octane and you shouldn't have any trouble.
