05 Motor work

I currently have a 05 Road Glide with 88", SE Stage 1 Air cleaner, Rinehart true duals and PCIII about 48K miles. Getting ready to switch cam chain tensioner to the Screamin' Eagle Hydraulic Cam Chain Tensioner and High-Flow Oil Pump Upgrade Kit having a hard time deciding on cams and which big bore kit to install. Im considering the fueling 525 cams and having a hard time figuring out what compression to get see that they range from 9.3:1 - 10.5:1. What would be the best set up for the money.

If looking for torque to come quick, and carry across a large rpm band then......

Check out www.bigboyzheadporting.com and click on the calculators section and you can find the compression ratio for different cams and builds.
