my87Z good stuff, anymore questions
04-26-2010 11:43 AM
Tommy Brown It's cool i just did what my87z said to do an i called the guy who build it an he told me what they were.

my87Z dont get mad at cobalt, he just gets a little cranky sometimes like the rest of us, if you look at one of his earlier post he stated exactly what you did, i think that might have been the source of his frustration

I'm just yanking your chain- and anyway, it is always good to have verification.

Good luck.

Ya think?? lol

my87Z more than likely yes, but there is no absolute way to tell without pulling the heads off and really finding out what pistons you have in there, getting either the part numbers or measuring the volume of the either dome, dish or valve reliefs

cobalt327 IF the 12:1 pistons were with a 64 cc chamber, a zero deck and a 0.041 composite gasket, the CR w/69cc heads will be ~11.22:1.

With the 11:1 pistons, the 69cc CR will be ~10.34:1.

ericnova72 My previous reply won't help you, I took the info you gave as being the dome volumes. If all you know is that they are 11-1 and 12-1 pistons you will be unable to find out the true compression ratio you have without knowing or measuring the dome volumes.
04-23-2010 02:48 PM
my87Z then sorry but unless you're willing to take the heads off and cc the top of the pistons then we really can't help you that much. to be honest between what the manufacturer says it will be and what it actually ends up being at the end of the day when everything is togehter and with all the different part used they can be off as much as 0.5 of a point and sometimes more
04-23-2010 10:10 AM
Tommy Brown no i dont have any more info on the piston i really dont remember which one i use when i built the motor all i remember was 11.1 an 12.1 dome piston
04-23-2010 07:33 AM
454C10 what is the cc of the piston.

when pistons are rated as 10;1 or 11:1, there is a head combustion size that goes along with that rating. typically they use a zero deck and 64cc for a sbc.

So, do you have any more information about the pistons? a part number would help a lot.

ericnova72 I use the calculator at , scroll down the page and click on automotive calculators, you will need a gasket thickness to get an accurate result.

-11cc(dome) was 11.9 to 1, -12cc(dome volume) was 12.1 to 1, both figured with an .041 gasket thickness and zero deck.

355 sbc compression question

I have some afr heads that are 69cc with 2 different set of dome piston, one set of pistons is 11, the other set of pistons is 12, my block is 0 deck can anyone tell me what type of compression the two would make out to be bacause i dont know how to add that up proper. Thank you for any help that you may have.
