Final amount cut dimension number would depend on how exact you want to be on the ratio and the exact measured cc of a chamber in your actual head as they will always vary some from the published spec because of the nature of casting tolerances back then. The head chamber could be smaller than listed but the usual pattern is they are bigger than listed.
