I hadn't figured it both ways, but it can't be more than .1 or .2 difference. It's at 9.0:1 with the pistons I got, so it may be as high as 9.2:1. Like woods said, quench is the objective. Ideal is .040, but anything under .050 will give positive effects of cooler running, less ping, and better mpg's. With the .022 head gasket I'll be between .036 and .046 across the board.

Joe, just taking a guess, it really sounds like a case of "oh sh!t, I had better get that done" to me.
Yeah, me too, but at least it's on the way now.
