Best way to get 11:1 CR is to sell them a get a set of early heads. If you intend to do a bunch of work to them you will find you are better off saving up your pennies and getting a set of aftermarket heads unless you are stuck on the idea of factory iron heads.

10:1 would be a better goal with a D3VE head which can be done with a flat top, zero deck, and heads cut down to a 92cc chamber volume. To get to 11+ CR really would require a domed piston which are available, but not really the route I'd take.

If that is what you want Speed-Pro Forged Pistons ZL2443NF30 will get you 11.4:1 CR with a 95cc chamber and zero decked.

Are you ever intending to upgrade this same engine again with different heads...?
If not ... go the custom domed piston route.
IF you are going to upgrade this same engine again, (not build a complete new one), then go flat-top pistons and mill the heads .030" or more if you also mill the intake side.

Why a custom dome when there is one available off the shelf?
