Well... I discussed it with Jim Butler and we agreed that 10.0 is very safe. 10.5 is maybe OK.
Then they changed it to 9.7 to be safe.
After todays discussion we stay at 9.7 to be very safe.

Yes, they are aware of that fact that I have 4 speed manual and they know that my rear end is some 4.11.

I do not have the HP estimation. After driving some first thousand miles, I will measure it.

The pitty is, that the custom pistons will be ready first in 6-8 weeks... :-( Than transport 2 weeks, customs 2 weeks, engine honing etc 2 weeks, assembly 2 weeks... With some luck the engine will run at the Christmas...

Because of the delivery duration I had time to go a little bit further with the changes and I ordered Holley sniper jet injection and advanced MSD ignition connected to this Sniper jet.
This is going to replace the standard Quadrajet and factory ignition.
