Hi all

First post on this forum.

I hope to soon own a "Jensen Interceptor Series 3" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jensen_Interceptor). This car will be fitted with a low compression (8:1) Chrysler 440 with dual carbs.

It is my intention to optimise the engine's performance as follows:
1) Convert the engine to fuel injection. This will be done using an Edelbrock 7144 EFI manifold with Megasquirt 2 ECU firing two EDIS-8 coil packs directly for wasted spark ignition. I'm very familiar with the Megasquirt side of things now having done many Rover V8s and Jaguar V12s.
2) Upgrade the compression ratio to around 10:1

I would like to start a thread on how I can cost-effectively increase the compression ratio on the 440 and what other upgrades I should do while the engine is open. Please quide me as to where I should post this question.

TIA
