Re: Open or closed chamber? What is the difference?
the recess in the bottom of the head in which the valves sit in is the combustion chamber. Open chamber is a low compression head and so when the piston is at tdc there is a larger gap remaining than with the closed chamber. Closed will be nearly flat accross the bottom thus causing Higher compression. So best depends on the motor and what compression ratio your trying to acheive.
