Does the "gasket thickness" value you gave above also include the piston-to-deck height? If so, what is the piston-to-deck height? (It's 0.012 on my motor.) 0.036" seems like it might be just the gasket itself. (That calculator in that link asks for the sum of the two.) Thanks in advance.If you know your dish,its easy to do on your own.
It only takes a few variables to know guys..IMO.
Of course always consult your engine builder.
Gaining alittle knowledge never hurts anyone.
stk bore: 3.552 (3.572 my case)
stk length (stroke): 3.54
piston dome: -17cc (in my case)
gasket thickness: stock .036 (.027 my case)
The calculator above was right @ 8.9:1
