Default raising compression in b16a2

Is there a way I can get compression up to 12:1 with the stock b16 81mm bore? Or do I have to raise the displacement?

Install CTR pistons, a smaller headgasket and mill the head .030

Yep, that will do it. when you mill the head, just make sure you time your cams properly if it has some crazy duration.. You can make the exhaust and intake valves hit due to the overlap.... seen it happen.. Just a friendly reminder
