You *could* change the heads, but then that leaves with the lower compression turbo pistons too...

That sucks man.

You might consider recouping your costs by selling off the engine. EBAY or Craigslist are 2 options. How much do you have into the engine?

You're only about 100 miles away from me. I may be able to help scrounge up a carb motor locally.

All the heads have the same combustion chamber, so no. What determines compression is the pistons. Turbo pistons have a bathtub cut into the top of them, making them 7.7:1 instead of the carb's 9.0:1
