Robert, stock are 10.5/1 compression. I think you have to run race gas all the time. Even the honda type R integeras only run 11.0/1.

I'm doing a 2.3 to 2.4? conversion. I ordered stock bore JE Forged pistons with a 11.0/1 compress turning on a 2.5l crank.

Got my custom pistons from

They can make pistons to your specs.

Gustave has a good article on pistons and compression.
