Camshaft duration could effect dynamic compression some too.

Are you sure you do not have excessive ignition timing?

Does your distributor have mechanical and vacuum advance or is it locked out? The advance curve may be too quick.
i was thinking the same thing mark ... cant see the compression with flat tops being high enough to cause the problem? id look at the timimg :wink:
