Question Compression on a PI head swap car too much for turbo?

I have a daily driven '96 GT and I am currently having a set of PI heads ported. My compression will most likely be ~10.5:1 because of my flat top pistons and the PI heads.

I want to know if this compression will be too high for a reliable turbo set up (with a low streetable level of boost, maybe ~8 lbs)?

Would a good tune take care of it?

I really don't want to change my pistons. So if it's not possible otherwise then I'll have to scrap the idea of turbo for now and just wait for a 2005 Mustang

Go to Turbomustangs.com, someone there might be able to answer your question. I would think it would depend on your tune.
