I was facing the same issue on my build - especially as I wanted to keep my maggie - the low compression doesn't really fit the bill for this sort of blower. That's why I'm building my engine now using a LSA block, shooting for 14-15 lbs of boost with around 10.1-10.4 of compression.

The LSA block will withstand far more power than a Maggie can deliver, is lighter and available as well ...

Sorry for not answering your question, I didn't even check the options of reducing cr on the LSX... the LSA was the obvious solution for me!
