I'm not the most knowledgable on this stuff, but my gut says that to run 18+ psi
you should do two things for sure. 1) Upgrade yer fuel delivery. 2) Reduce static
compression ratio (8.0:1? Back to stock ratio for you bub!).

Still working on that water injection kit?

Can you explain to me why the piston ring debris did not damage your valvetrain?
Are your valves just made of a tougher material? What about the intake/exhaust
ports near the valves?

I would imagine it would be worth your while to get upgraded connecting rods just to
be on the safe side. I have heard the stockers are good until about 250 crank
HP. Nice though, aren't they? Shot-peened and everything?
