These 70's holdouts you mention, what compression are they? Do you ever consider finding some higher compression heads now that we have unleaded 93 available everywhere?

I am debating whether or not to start a new thread.

Instead of size vs mpg, let's talk power vs MPG. Displacement can be very deceptive; my 1203cc, 58mpg Buell is pushing only about 100hp.
