Don't use the high compression piston and you'll be ok.

Even at 11:1 guys dont have pinging problems down there- you will be ok...the bigger cam really does offset the compression issue...just try to use 93 octane pemex premium--its the Red Pump.

My new motor (11:1) has been pinging :devil: I went to half race gas (110 octain) and 91 for now. It might have been old gas from sitting so long :thumbsup: I'll try 91 again and see if it was the gas getting old.
