Sorry, I mistyped but it is a 389. These were high compression motors. If it is a flat to[p piston check how deep it sits in the hole, cc the chamber and that should give you an idea of the compression. Otherwise the listed factory compression is a starting point. You can work backward and determine if you raised or lowered the compression if you look up what size chambers the factory heads were.
