    Your gsr engine doesnt flow enough to even take advantage of those camshafts. Like Blanco said, more compression is definately a good thing, but your head will need to be beefed up quite a bit. Plan on spending some money...

    As far as milling the head, I wouldn't go more than 0.030. Decking the block...not a big fan of that at all. Two layer HG (thinner), not such a bad idea when milling the head, just as long as you keep your stock pistons. If you do infact replace them, stay in the 11:1 ratio.

    Easy way out, mill the head and run a thinner head gasket.
    As for the camshafts, I'm all for oem. ITR would do well in that setup.
    Ditch that intake manifold and throttle body and get a skunk2 setup.

    True, but when you mill the head, your bringing those valves closer to the pistons either way. I remember in school, engines... something about clearance issues (not p/v), but for some reason its not coming to me...
