Yes, a good time to do the homework is before anything gets bought.
I've got dished pistons with aluminum heads with a compression ratio of about 9:6 to 1.
I did that because the car is a cruiser that I want to at least run faster. I run 87 octane all day without any knock. When I know I'm going to the track, then I'll get some high octane juice.
I used a mild roller cam.
If all I was building was a track or drag car, believe me, it would have a higher compression ratio, and a bigger cam.
