There is no way to use the pistons that you have. They have hollow domes that cannot be machined down. I feel bad for you being in this situation but you should have came here before you ordered any parts. You are saying they recommended that camshaft K12-365-4 and the 1.6 rockers. With the pistons you have the compression is so high you would have to use reace gas (110 octane).
I Calculate the engine ratio and it's appeare 10.52:1
I use a head a thick gaskit 0.045in
do you think this will help??it's diffecult to return the piston cos I already open it and it get some dirt
