Stick with about 11.5-1 compression and I'd also recommend a custom grind cam, something with 112-114 lsa. Depending on how much boost you are planning on running may want to use aluminum rods, definately a forged crank possibly billet depending on hp and intended use. Also a blower piston is a must and of couse a good block with 4 bolt mains, splayed is preferred. I'm in the process of building a 572 Ford, blown alcohol, takes a lot of research to make sure it is going to live. You can find alot of info at www.insidetopalcohol.com. Chris
