Nitrous and compression love eachother.

Big block wise it was difficult to keep the head from lifting with anything over 18-1. The 10 5/8 studs would streatch. I think the Yates boys found about the same limitations with the small blocks back in the unlimited NASCAR days. About 18-1 and some great cam events caused enough cylinder pressure to streatch HIGH QUALITY studs and blow head gaskets regularly.

That small a shot, I wouldnt fear getting DAMN close though.
I have a 16-1 engine and plan a 600 shot.
