Your single carb will be the power killer overall.

I know you said you wanted to retain the single CD175 but you will wake that engine up immensley with a pair of SU's or Strombergs. You're on the right track with swapping camshafts, however the area which will benefit most from the improved cam (in the top end of the rev range) is going to be restricted by the single carb.

I wouldn't push static compression past 9.5:1. Not because the bottom end can't handle it, but because of the trash fuel we have today (though ya'll across the pond may have far better fuel than us 'muricans).
