Re: 11.5-1 comp with flat top pistons

yer you can but you will have to deck them down a fair way and on the edge of the heads where the big water jacket is they get thin and tend to leak water. Just run a 0 deck and see how many cc you have in your heads tell me and ill work it out if u need a hand. also the cc of the piston valve reliefs

Std 4V CC give you 10.5-11 anyway. It's a lot of work for not much. If you are going to run AV Gas or whatever you may as well run 12.5 or so and go beserk with the motor

I agree with what xacoupe said... I think the most you can run on premium unleaded petrol like Mobil Synergy or Optimax is 11 to 1 and that's with a big solid cam... and even then I think you might need some sort of a octane booster.

I can't remember seeing a stock domed valve?? I've seen aftermarket domed valves. Usually the valve relief is 1-2cc's.

REVHEADRON: At least 11:1 with 302 closed chamber heads.

Re: 11.5-1 comp with flat top pistons

It's been a long while, but from memory the chambers on my old phase 3 were 62 or 63 cc, and that was after polishing. What figures here???

As Maniac said, aftermarket pistons usually figure around 5cc or 6 cc, so i'd guess 4 or 5 cc for a standard piston.

Re: 11.5-1 comp with flat top pistons

Ive had 4vs down as low as 56 cc but like isaid they get real thin on the water jackets at the end of the heads so try avoid it.
