Yeah. Top piston to top of block at tdc. You wanna measure between cylinders because the pistons will rock.

Do you mean deck clearance? That is a typical measurement when trying to measure compression. FYI stock is .120"

@Carcrazygts2 I'm getting around 9.4:1 CR on your setup. Seems pretty good.

Thanks @4x4dave I just checked an 9.4 is not quite enough for what I was looking for.

On Pump gas it would be perfect. E85 needs to be slightly higher for optimization.

I know I'm a bit preachy on the TF heads, but they have 38CC heads which will tighten up the compression a bit. E85 will be pretty cool though. You almost need some hemi pistons lol.
