202 engine modifications - HELP!!!

Hi Helpful Holden people,
Please help. I have many questions which endless internet searching and pub discussions cannot answer.

I have an EK Holden (pink sedan with flames.) It has a Rod Hadfield Chassis kit, HR disc brake front end, HT holden Diff centre, 5 speed Celica gearbox, and most importantly, a red 202 engine.

I intend to perform a few modifications to the engine in a bid to make it go faster (of course.) I'm using secondhand bits which have fortuitously come my way, so I'm seeking some advice as to whether I'm on the right track...

Firstly I have sourced a "Blue Motor" 12 port head and had 15/1000 inch shaved off it. How much difference is this likely to make to my compression? I know the Red / Blue 202's ran 9.4:1 with a stock head.

HR bench seat

I have a blue bench seat out of my HR ute and i'm looking at selling it..... the reason for selling it is because i have recently put in some bucket seats and i no longer have any use for it.

it was completely re-trimmed about 10 years ago and about 2 months ago the driver's side had some springs replaced, all up the springs and installation cost about 130 dollars. there is one surface crack about 1 inch long in the drivers side.

i'm in Brisbane, and i'm looking at around 200 dollars for it. email me if you are interested: nimajneb85@hotmail.com

Pictures below: (sorry about the poor quality)
