Why do you need dome pistons? What is the rest of the combo? Will this be for street? race? 14101083...87-up...350..........Gen.I, also used on crate motors, 285 or 300 hp, 64cc chambers, 72' center manifold bolt angles
dome pistons and 64cc chambers will put the compression ratio up around 11:1 which won`t work on pump gas.

just an fyi tpi is only good for 5500 rpm at best, go performer rpm and carb, just seems to me your building for a little more than the tpi is capable of giving you...
