What should I do? Turbo or back to N/A

I just got my motor back from the machine shop and the builder ended up making the CR at 10 to 1, instead of the 8.5 or 9 max that I wanted. I have run a turbo with this much compression before but is it really worth it? Should I just go n/a and sell my turbo...to get a supercharger? Would going meth injection help things...? Any advice or comments would be appreciated.

Ditto! It's not your fault he screwed up. If you wanted a turbo car, his mistake shouldn't make you have to change your setup.

if you havent already port the heads and do some chamber work... should raise CC's a bit to help comp. ratio.

head gasket thickness might help as well

work up the courage and stick it back in his face or lawyer up. you paid for a service, he did not provide it. for all you know, those are used pistons that he had sitting around that he used so he could make 100% profit on it.
