Anybody make dome pistons to work with Vortec heads?

Was wondering if there are any dome pistons available for Vortec heart shaped chamber heads? Would prefer to keep the domes under 0.100" I hear a lot about people having to cut the chamber or grind on their pistons to make domes work. Figured that some company might have something already made for this application.

Keith Black makes a forged pop-up that will work with Vor-Tec head. It has a .163" solid dome that can be whittled down to the height you choose. This piston comes in 2 versions, one for a 5.7" rod, the other for a 6" rod. These are pricey and are grooved for 1/16", 1/16", 3/16" rings.

I don't know of any other domed piston specifically made for the Vor-Tec head.

More compression makes more HP. This is with an alky race motor. Would prefer to run 49cc heads and flat tops to get around 14.5:1 but that would cost too much.
