Compression ratio...

760 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  RangerFred
Does a thicker headgasket increase or decrease compression ratio? I'm thinking since it's gonna be taller, it's gonna increase stroke and increase cr. Someone tell me if I am right and if not, let me know. Thanks.

Re: Compression ratio... (StevenH)

From what i thought, the height of the psiton doesn't determine the compression ratio, but it all relies on what's on of the top of the piston itself. ie: shape of the psiton (dome, flattop) and the valve reliefs (size, shape, and amount of reliefs)
