If you go w/higher compression pistons, be sure to spec them for the closed chamber heads. The piston domes for an open chamber head will interfere w/the chamber of your heads. Open chamber domed pistons can sometimes be modified to work, but it's better to get the correct pistons to begin with, IMHO.

Good luck and have fun!
