    so why is 70 down the hole bad ? with 9.5.1 ,why why why did ford do this ? when the average clevo is 30 down the hole,is it more prone to ping pong and detonation with 70 thou ? than zero ? the 400 was born in mid 1971 and experimental 4v manifolds are very rare i have seen a few castings with the xe prefix and to suit 4v heads,but by 1972 it was all over and the dredded call from head office said bin the lot,it only took 50 years for someone to make a zero deck piston available,ahh let me correct that some 400 pistons were made in the 80s in small numbers with a higher comp height but i guess the 400 was not popular enough to continue manufacturing im sure they were speed pro forged you can find some info on them on the net.

    or comp ratios with the open chamber heads is 9.75 with 13cc,10.25 with 7.5cc or 10.7 with 3cc pistons.i just had a look at these pistons again and they have gone up in price again,probly cause they only made 1 big lot and now are down on stock in the usa,might have to wait until a surplus happends and then buy em at a decent price or just go for the stock pistons as my car will not be a race car.

    or if the heads are left at 58cc 11.51.1 or with a 060 head gasket 10.99.1.

    ok its 10.66.1 which is not bad really a lot less than i thought,and use a decent cam should wind it up.

    i will do the math with -13cc pistons and closed chamber heads opend up a bit ,lets say 65cc and zero deck.

    only problem is dean the factory style pistons are down the hole 70thou,the aftermarket ones come in 3cc 7.5cc and 13cc so a fair bit of choice there,using open chamber heads ,lowest comp with the -13cc will be 10.5.1,then 12.1 and 14.1 ,these pistons were made with using the open chamber heads in mind.

    i have 2v c/c heads ready to use,eddy alloy intake,crank is done,just need pistons and internals,plan is to put it in my next wheels but finding something is getting hard,i will pay up to 5k for a xe sedan as long as the body is ok,have c4 bell suit big block,would love to do another chestnut sedan up even if i have to paint it ,t bar auto ,no power steer,no air,and leave the diff std ratio i have had enough of playing diffs,just a family cruiser i suppose.

    the reson it is not opend up on the 302 manifold is to make more air speed ,i read this in a interview with mick webb on factory manifolds,i have used that manifold with many 351 engines and had no problems.

    i can just imagine how many spready to squarebore adaptors linx and redline have sold since the xc came out with spready manifold,i know i have bought about 10 of them over the years.

    these carbys came at an era of 80s usa wanna be muscle cars like trans am,and others which had a spreadbore manifold,dont really see a lot of them now a days but good score ,your knowledge should be easy to reco that fkr.
