It seems like hypereutectic flat tops or small dishes can be found in the $10-$15 each range, but when I start looking for dishes with 12-18cc, the prices go up to $40-$60 each.

Am I looking in the wrong places?

Seems like it would be better to get a set of heads with larger combustion chambers, and pistons with less of a dish. Like maybe 72cc heads and 10cc dish pistons.

For all the hype about Vortec heads, do they all have 64-68cc chambers or are there other high flow heads available with larger chambers?
Northern Auto, RockAuto, and Competition Products are a few you might take a look at, but I don't know of a cheap inverted dome piston w/a 12-18cc dish volume.
