Resleeved block, forged rods, 11+:1 cr pistons. Have fun. I haven't figured out how high of octane that you'll need to spray a 100 shot on an 11:1 cr, but if you can offord an engine build you can probably afford race gas once a week.

If you have good gas (92 oct or higher) available, you should be able to run 11.5:1 or 12:1 compression as long as you have a good engine management system (programmable). If you build the motor right, N2O and high compression love each other.

You should consider Darton sleeves if you want to spray a lot.

Octane booster is a waste of money. A can of it bumps your actual octane by a fraction of a point.

You might talk to Norwood Autocraft about building a motor for you. The last time I was there, they had a wicked 2.6L H22. Their number is 972-831-8111. They do great work. Mostly Ferraris, but my friends and I have gotten them enthusiastic about Hondas.

Yes, if you do it right. Especially if you use an electronic controller to run your N2O. That way you only pull timing when you need to. The rest of the time you are running all motor at max potential.
