Just an observation, all the heads raising compression will give some increase in power. There are many factors to consider, carby, manifold etc. The stock carb is like drinking a milkshake thru a small straw, you get the idea.

But, like anything, the results will be only as good as the work put into it.
By this I mean tuning, optimized timing, fuel curve close and of course the motor must be in good repair BEFORE you start.
