Well, actually, the narrower the squish is, the more resistant the motor is to detonation. But there is a mechanical limit to how narrow you can go. That's why I was saying I don't see how you can build a 11.72 motor with 59 cc heads and flat-top pistons.

Timothy, how far down in the bore is the piston at top dead center?
