Default Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

I don't know how after market piston manufacturer's measure CH (I'm to cheap to order a set) but, Ford measures to the corner of the dome, above the top ring, not to the top of the dome. That corner, also has to be more than .036 from the head surface so, make sure you know what that measurement is. Std CH is 1.530, as I remember.
