nonintercooled 10.5:1 with meth

Can I get away without an intercooler? I am only looking to run about 6lbs, definitely no more than 8 since its only a stock block.

Setup is in my sig.

I really would hate to rely on meth injection solely for detonation protection, i've seen one system fail and destroy the engine in a 1 yr old 30,000 dollar subaru sti. If you were going alky blow through it'd be a different story. Personally I'd either build another engine with a good block at a more desirable compression ratio. Or put an intercooled low boost setup on the car. Thats just my opinion, but even at low boost with that much compression and a decent set of heads your going to be in block splitting territory anyhow. By taking the i/c out of the equation when the air temps are up its really counter acting the benefits of the meth and would likely lead to issues. On a low compression setup it wouldnt be that big of an issue.
