Default 07 M8 OVS turbo kit need advice

Currently installing an OVS race gas kit on my 07 M8. The kit came complete with everything I need, but Im having an issue with the head. Currently have an RK Tek head with high elevation domes which I don't believe will work, so my question, is there a certain year stock M8 head that I could get for cheap that will lower the compression enough? Or just suck it up, RK wants 230 bucks for a new set of domes.

I had a 2010 M8 with OVS Race gas kit. I used the lower compression head from an '09 for the first season, and then switched back to the higher compression the second season. I'd look for a stock '07 to '09 head to start with. I'd recommend calling Garr at OVS directly.

Good luck

Have your stock head remachined for the elevation you ride. OVS did both 600 & 800 heads for our race sleds zero issues.

Use a stock head or get Brent at Arctic Edge to cut a stock 07 head for you.
