I was seriously thinking about a fel pro 1074. I will 8.5:1 cr with my setup just with the -31cc pistons and 65cc heads. Thats without head gaskets.

i dont know the best, so i will just share what i am using and my set-up.

I am running a really thin (.030 ish?, cant remember) COMETIC head gasket.

11.3:1 compression, 7 lbs of boost. ARP studs.

This is the third time i have re-used the same headgaskets 3 times now. never leaked or given me any issues..

damn thats some compression. I think the Op can use a 1074 if he wants to up the compression a bit. I have seen some people stick with standard head gaskets and others use cometics.

I am running E85. I am planning on doing water injection, and upping the boost to 12 lbs with the same compression.
