[QUOTE=hcompton;1630899] Zero decking the block will give you more cr increase than cutting the heads. [QUOTE]

That is absolutely backwards. Most heads have a quench area in the chamber, milling an open chamber head verses decking would result in the same amount of CR change, with a poncho head, because it has a quench pad (even small) you gain more raise in CR thousanth per thousanth milling the head than decking the block.
Also, engines today wont run at 300 degrees in the cooling system.Damage will occur. Absolutely.
I like your enthusiasm here but stick to the facts.
And Cobalt is RARELY incorrect, if you have a valid point ..OK. As of yet I dont see that. Chill out.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
