File fit oil rings, with a real narrow gap. 14 to 18 thousands top and a little wider 2nd gap.
Raise the compression ratio.
Put a block heater on the engine.
Reduced oil ring tension.

  • Anti-reversionary headers and everything everyone else has suggested.
You can price that all out, calculate the ROI and have a sad.

ROI=sad.
