Will save interesting to see what people say. 360whp isn't that ambitious so you should be able to get away with just some forged pistons and but I dare say people will go all out with suggestions of closed decks and darcon liners.

I am already thinking about what to do WHEN my engine fails. I think I would like to just buy a crate AMS engine for $15k and be done with it.

Hopefully I have a couple of years to save for it first.....

Well that sucks a fat one. Out of curiosity, what made you get a compression test done? What symptoms were you experiencing, etc.

360awhp isn't ambitious, The 257 with duel AVCS will piss it out, You will just need more supporting mods ie fuel system and a fair bit of boost.

Firstly noticed misfiring and hesitation down low, after that came dramatic loss of power could tell straight away that it didn't feel right.
