Not sure it would survive long at that rpm or not. I also have a 1946 Packard with the 245 engine. Compression could probably be increased. Would need to check for head to valve clearance first. I noted that the 245 and the 327 share the same bore and stroke. The 327 uses larger intake valves. Not sure if these could be retro fitted in the 245 or not. Same as the cam grind on a 327 has more lift than the cam of the 245 does. Whether the 245 cam could be ground to a similar profile. my friend is a big advocate of using a turbocharger on engines. He say that is the easiest way to increase power.
