It would be better if you could use reverse dome pistons to maintain quench, but pure dishes will lower the compression,

although reducing quench and increasing detonation possibilities at the same time.

What I am saying is that it is possible to lower your compression one full point and still be required to run the same octane fuel because of loss of quench.
