It may "sound" better with a tad bit more compression, if that's what your after.

But if your considering the effects on power output. Note minor increases in CR make very little difference to power output. It’s very much the law of diminishing returns.

If for whatever reason you’d built a engine and set CR (static) at 8.0, you’ll see a healthy increase in power by stepping up to 10.0

However, the difference between 10.0 and 10.5 will be very small. Not always accurate to state a specific compression number a engine "has to have" for a given cam. The exact number to aim for will be a judgement call based on MANY factors.

Example, I suspect if you install this cam in a 9.3 static compression engine with iron heads vs the same engine with 9.5 static compression there wouldn't be a rats ass difference in the seat of your pants on a street car.

But hey, that's just an opinion !
