    there calculations are very close. without knowing some other factors like piston heigth head gasket thickness your piston cc i guessed at some of your specs and came up with 11.1:1. just some more food for thought i would be sure to run alittle race fuel in this setup to be safe for detination. you should only have to mix it 70/30 pump to race. if your gona run it hard.

    IM JUST GOING TO RACE THE CAR SO I WILL USE 104 TORCO RACE FUEL FOR THE MOTOR OR SHOULD I USE A HIGHER OCTANE.TO GET COMPRESSION UP SHOULD USE DOMED PISTONS OR MILL THE HEAD?

    well that all depends on your budget pistons would be your best choice. milling the heads cheeper but why destroy a brand new set of afr heads. this all depends on what compression your goal is. keep it 10.5-11:1 its cheep on the pocket run pump fuel with alittle race fuel. the best thing you could do is call quick fuel and get yourself the e85 kit from them you will pick up more hp and tq over race fuel and cost you 1.5 gallon the kits runs just under 300 for a 4150 carb.
