    I am performing a 331 rebuild and will be purchasing new heads at the same time. I currently have GT40 Iron heads, but want to get new aluminum heads.

    Considering I will be going with a 331 combustion chamber size should I go with for a proper Compression Ratio for a blower at 10psi?

    I assume I should also get "blower" or dished pistons, is that correct?

    For 10PSI I would get the combustion/piston combo that would yield a 9.5-10.0:1 compression ratio, this will still allow you to have decent drive ability around town and get the power to come in a bit sooner than with a lower compression/higher boost combo.

    Thanks for the info. I also forgot to mention that this is not a daily driver that will see most of its time at the track.

    Do you have any idea which combo may work best, or how to figure compression ratio?
