I'm going with 8.5:1 custom JE Pistons. That should let me get a decent amount of power .
Is there any special trick to removing and pressing in new studs? I know that I'll have to have the big end honed. My father has a machine shop, but we don't do automotive work. So we have the equipment, just not the know-how. Any special tips?

I'm still looking for the following measurments:

1. Headgasket thickness when compressed. From my calculations it should be around 1.5mm.

2. Block height (from center of crank to block surface). My calculations show 227.5mm

3. 16V head chamber volume. My calculations come up with 55cc.

Thanks guys!
