Default 5.9 Build help

Hi.. I have my 360 tore apart and am forced to bore it out due to a broke ring at just over 100.000 miles .. I would love to raise the compression but am keeping most of the engine stock, for now.. once I get the block back I will no what size pistons to order. 0.30 over witch would bring it to a 365. or a 367 if I have to go 0.40 bore.. but I want to no if anybody has raised the COMP. RATIO just buy changing pistons. I would like to get it to 9.5 to 9.7 but I don't want to have to do the heads just yet.. "that's for the 408 build" I am going with new pistons, rings, all bearings, gaskets, valves ext.. and looking at these pistons and useing them for charting-specs info.. http://www.campbellenterprises.com/mopar_kb_pistons.htm
http://www.campbellenterprises.com/m...ed_pistons.htm

and this is the one I would like to get... http://www.summitracing.com/parts/UEM-KB362-030/
any sugestons on pistons, or getting the comp. up a bit.. or what else I will have to do to put these in my engine.. thanks again

You're not going to see any great performance gains by just raising the static compression ratio. Since you're going to have the heads apart, you might consider some port work and a different cam grind. If you go with a piston that gets you about 9.5:1, you can level the heads and deck the block and you should be very close to a 10:1 static ratio.
