W180 high compression or not

I found this car at a local pick and pull

It has an M180.924 short reach head. I have an M180.XXX in my Unimog. The unimog is a single carb low compression engine. My question, is weather or not the engine I found is a higher compression that the one I have. Also, I have long reach rockers, and the W180 has a short reach head. Are their any real problems with the short reach over the long reach. And if the W180 is not much higher compression, woudl the extra 30 ponys be from the duel carb setup

FOR SALE: 1969 404.1 crawler mog $25,000
