Compression Calculator

Compression Calculator

Simply fill in the form below to calculate your compression ratio

Bore: (diameter)
Stroke:
Cylinder Head Volume:
Effective Dome Volume:
Use (-) for Dome and (+) for Dish.
Deck Clearance:
Compressed Gasket Thickness:
Number of Cylinders:
Compression Ratio :  
Total Displacement (in.3) :  
Total Displacement cc's :  
 

The cc for the piston is entered as a positive number on a -cc Dish or Flat top piston and a negative number on a dome piston. This seems very confusing but it is because even though it is a -cc on the piston, those same cc's are gained in cylinder volume. Hence the positive number in the calculator. Same goes for a dome where it is positive cc's on the piston but a reduction in cylinder volume. Hence the - (negative) number in the calculator.
