ready to boost! (56k got some time)

So after a few months of collecting parts i finally have everything ready to put my new built engine in . The motor has eagle rods, supertech 8.7:1 pistons, fr head, focus central cam gears, crower stage 2 turbo grind cams, massive pulleys and Massive MSX 90 Performance Ignition, motorcraft colder plugs, and 180 degree thermostat. I also have the new htp performances intake manifold on its way soon i hope, all three vf motor mounts, torsen lsd,
cm stage 4 six puck, Fidanza Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel, 3 gauge pillar pod, aem wideband, and autometer egt, oil pressure, and boost gauge, and a custom vacuum manifold. This is getting all installed this weekend, and hopefully soon the massive speed system turbo will be going in and soon and then ill be on my way to 350 . Here are some pictures, let me know what you think.

Here is a picture of my car and the motor when i picked it up this weekend at Massive. It has their turbo manifold and a turbo they had sitting around mocked up on it.

So is your compression 8.7 ? If so why so low ?

Is this a street car or race only?

Whatís your goal for boost? Your compression is so low when youíre not in boost the car will make no power till 3500-4000. Just something to think about if you over looked that. I think thatís where tom was going with his questions. One more thing.. I see you have BAP what are some of the other ways you going to handle fuel management? Everything looks good just needs a good tune.

Low compression is very streetable.

A perfect example.
Focus RS has 8.0:1 CR

Ford lightning 8.4:1

8.7 is not low.

And 3/10's is not a very big difference from the 9.0 or 8.9 most other MFG's use...
