The main motivation behind this project is to determine what compression ratio is yielded using different combinations of D series pistons and D series heads. There is such a large variance in the way that Honda designed the pistons that just about any compression ratio is doable.

For example, the PG6B (86-87 Integra) and the P28 (92-95 Civic) both have the same compression height (1.181"). They will be flush with the top of hte block when installed. However, the Integra piston has a small dome, but the Civic piston has a HUGE dish. The difference between the 2 pistons afa compression ratio is very large.

Here are some pics comparing the P29 (88-89 Integra) to the PM7 (88-91 JDM ZC). This Integra piston was slightly modded on top, but I've seen a very clear picture of the top of this piston and can say that it is identical in shape to the PM7.
