You need to supply more information to determine the compression ratio.

If you make us guess, we charge extra.

piston dish dome valve relief volume

piston ,deck clearance at TDC

cylinder head chamber volume

head gasket volume or bore and thickness specs

bore ,, stroke

You also need to know the piston/deck clearance at TDC
and the gasket bore diameter and thickness.
