Where can you get these higher compression pistons? What'* the est cost?
Or do they have to be custom made?

Also, (I'm not a gear nut) so what does "add a little more cam" mean?
I'm guessing "cam shaft", again... where/cost and/or custom?

I'm almost brain dead when it comes to the inside of an engine.
