I like RK Tek, he will build any compression you want. Great guy to deal with.

I turn heads all the time, I've even made heads from scratch! I just chuck them up on the spark plug! Most squish bands are about 10 deg!

Get your compression down to about 140 and a stock timing key!

go with a twin to save a few headaches, you will need engine(obviously) mounting plate, wire harness, possibly may need to move motor mounts, and the exhaust. if i were you id also look at upgrading the chaincase and jackshaft. in other words, you basically need everything under the hood changed
