With a proper tune you should be fine

Is the head ported? larger valves? any other work done to it? will you be safe? if thats all your doing, probably, but honestly, I wouldn't risk it. its not worth it.

I was running a head shaved .060", on a block bored to 85.5mm (giving me a compression ratio of 11.2:1) on 85 octane. Granted the air is thinner here, but it ran with no knock and made gobs of power. Still have that block, needs a new crank.

With a proper tune you should be fine , no one can say what your HP/Tq # will be , you will need to dyno it anyway to set the cam gears so you will know your HP then
