Question re: Stock AV10 Head

I have to drop my AV7 engine to do some maintenance and I figured it might be a good idea to consider replacing my head with a stock av10 head, since it has an actual squish-band.

Currently I have a rather aggressively sanded down stock av7 head. It's decked down so much that you can't really see the indented circle around the dome, and it's almost flat with the rest of the head. Still doesn't provide a squish-band though, just a tad more compression.

My questions are:

1. Do you think it's worth it to make the switch to a stock av10 head with a squish-band?

2. Should I spend the time decking that down too, or is the compression high enough already?

Thanks. Trying to squeeze all I can out of my stock av7.
