Default lowering compression with gaskets=bigger n20 shot?

O.K.,
Running est. 11:4.1 compression and was planning a 55 shot but am getting a little greedy and wondering if I can lower the compression and use a bigger shot of the juice. I know that nitrous loves compression but I also thought that the high compression is a barrier to using a bigger shot and subsequently bigger gain.

Any and all thoughts on the topic would be appreciated.

thx, Twizt2

detonation threshold
I wouldn't risk it, but thats me
the way i see it is taking advantage of compression
means running less FI, but you want more
my friend told me once jdm and adm tunning is different
over here we concentrate on putting more FI for power
over there they concentrate on fuel tunning to extract max efficency for what
they can run. it sounded cool when he said it and it's true

i'm sure there are other ways that are less risky
towing your car sucks
oh yeah how did you figure you're compresion ratio?

Thanks for your view, tech. One of the very cool guys here on the board helped me out with that using a calculator that figures it depending on your piston and head combo. Of course now... no one can be found that will help... me... out!

C'mon guys. I know I'm supposed to just change the pistons back to the stock B18C1's and then up the juice but I know some of you have lowered your compression ghetto style. Talk to me.

Don't make me beg.
It gets ugly.
