What breaks things is detonation not hgher compression.10:1 is not that radical anyhow.

I would recommend you get a harmonic balancer for it from Hot Heads. I don't believe those engines had one stock.

It was the low deck Dodges that didn't, but a new one might be a good idea.

Of course, why wouldn't itquestion It's at least as strong as any 283 Chevy or small journal 327. Those cranks ended up in blower motors much like the Desoto. If you're worried about bottom end strength the only reason would be because you didn't replace the rod and main bolts with new ARP's. If you don't it'll fly apart (rods that is, mains are just cheap insurance).
