Sure it lowers the comp ratio, the idea being that you can bung more pressure in with less detonation risk.

When you loose this squish/quench the chamber becomes MORE prone to detination. See? Counter produtive. Dont know if you can get them, but if I were doing it, I'd want a lower compression ratio piston (deeper dish with a crossflow) that kept the top edges of the piston right up the top where they should be for good tight Quench.

    The rest of it is brakets and pulleys and ratios and manifold. Do that in a sandwich brake
    Not forgetting what the plates do to rocker geometry , just like skimming the head too much for the other extreme.

    I fitted a shorock c75 blower to a over bored 1500 triumph spitfire motor which i had in my hot rod minor. it ran fine with no problems.
