Yeah I can't see how you would get 10.0:1 with a dishtoped piston, normally you would use a flattop.

Umm yeah acl have a 15.4cc dish at 9.5 comp at 85 cc using standard rods so i think 10.1 is possible with a dish especially if you go chev rods (obviously not with those pistons) and or zero deck height and shaved heads .

Maybe the impossible is quite possible when you know what your doing...
