.. Yes, that's why I agreed with you... use the XR282 cam... or even a smaller one... not the XR300 cam someone suggested... re-read what I said again...

yes flat top pistons would of been better , the scat kit i got come with 19.80cc dish pistons , so i replaced them with the 12.80cc dish ones. i did look at flat top frist but they push my compresson up to 11.1+ , i did'nt want to have the piston down in bore as wanted good quench , so i went with the 12.80cc so i can deck the block to zero and have good quench at .041 and a fair compression at 10:1 . another thing was the cambers in my heads a 65cc so if i had the 75c one's i would of been flat tops.
