Should I get rods and pistons with a higher compression and what will that cost? Someone said around $4000 but that doesn't seem right. Or should I get a head package? Custom or a kit?

Stage 2 cranes, cam gears, superchip, udp, cool-flo, FC TB, race header, flex pipe, borla.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">A short block is ,for the most part, an engine without the head,intake,exhaust etc. Pretty much no top end. This can vary a bit depending on the source.

That's not what I want. I think I'm just gonna get the head work done, except for the fact that I think I'm smelling my clutch burning.
Unless that's the smell of brake dust. I can't remember.
