The increase will be minuscule. I'd take the thicker cylinder walls any day.

The reason I was asking about the dished or FT pistons was because I have a large combustion chamber, around 76cc I think. I can't find 305 heads or I would go with them. Right now I have supposedly the worst casting GM heads around.
I wouldn't buy domed pistons just to use those heads w/high test. No return on the money spent, power-wise. I'd instead use FT pistons and cheap gas- until my budget will allow Vortec's or something.
