Never heard of a high compression head for an N.
IF, and I mean big IF, you could find a hemi-type piston that would actually fit in an N head without blowing the head right off, realize that you are reducing the volume of fuel/air mixture in the cylinder which would leave you with less detonation, thereby REDUCING hp.
Only viable way I can think of (and it's expensive) is to put in cast iron sleeves, bore them out a few thousand, and have your pistons resized (or manufactured new) but with 3 tight fitting compression rings (actually you may be able to buy 3-ring pistons anyway). That may raise your ratio a little, but you still have a low compression engine.
It's really not worth it.
