Here’s How to use the Compression Ratio Calculator
1. Input the number of cylinders your engine has into the designated field.
2. Enter the bore diameter of each cylinder into its corresponding field.
3. Type in the piston stroke into its respective field as well.
4. Include head gasket thickness that you’re using to seal off your engine’s combustion chambers against leaking gases into its corresponding field on this calculator tool.
5. Input gasket bore size (in inches, centimeters, or millimeters) – this is usually larger than CYLINDER BORE DIAMETER as it accommodates movement during thermal expansion
6. Take note of deck clearance-the distance between piston and block deck at Top Dead Center – record this value in required units and input them into their designated fields on this calculator too..
7. Record the total combustion chamber space available inside each cylinder before compression (expressed in cc or cubic inch)
8. Record complete piston volume including crown shape- where gas pressure concentrates during initial stages of combustion
9. Confirm accuracy all these values before hitting compute button on this calculator tool
