    Trade the gsr block for a ls block and get money for mods back :)

    Lower Compression Ratio is NOT always better. Ideal for FI applications is ~9.0:1. You can go higher, but you had better have a decent tune.

    You need to set a power goal before you start picking parts. In addition, you do not pick parts based upon what someone on an internet forum tells you to pick. You pick them by doing research. If you had done any research, you would know that OEM Honda crankshafts are just about the best you're gonna get. Balanced to excessive RPM's and tough enough to withstand 600whp, it just doesn't get much better than that.

    Do some research, set a power goal, then try asking more specific questions.

    Agreed 100%
    If you are set on using your GSR block, then use your GSR crank along with it. You don't need to be concerned with a rock bottom c/r...use a set of correct pistons matched w/ Eagles to get you the compression you need.
