I've seen that model dynoed at 135 HP & 93 pound feet of torque. Don't worry too much about compression as you will have different result with different gauges. Make sure they are within 10% of eachother and above 120 PSI.
The usual issues are ring degradation of the moly filler which causes stalling when engaging RER, poor fuel economy, low peak power and getting your a$$ whooped by 600s.
The stock reed cages are also suspect. They tend to delaminate the rubber coating around the reed petals. Tell tale signs are light blistering on the outside of the reed box. Performance will be affected in the form of poor idle characteristics, poor fuel economy and boggy acceleration.
Bill Cudney @http://www.cudneyracing.com has the best fix for the rings and pistons(if needed)
Aftermarket reeds are at par pricewise with OEM and improve mid range throttle performance (some require jetting down which nets some minor decrease in fuel consumption).
Good luck with you new purchase
