this will increase your compression ratio. i believe you'll have to remap your computer or it will not run right... but i don't know too much about that. with more compression you have potential for more power, but if you don't adjust the rest of the motor it may not run right and you may actually get less power.

you will also have a tighter/closer piston to valve clearance.I am unsure of the tolerances,but I would do a double check with a competent mechanic to ensure that you`re not going to mess anything up in the valvetrain. Just my 2cents/humble opinion.
