ROSS Racing Pistons for the 302 Ford based engines are manufactured on advanced 2618-t6 forgings. Most feature double spiral locks (or wire locks in some applications), forced pin oilers with oil distribution grooves, and lock removal indentations. They also feature gas accumulator grooves in the second land, as well as optional gas ports.
Flat Top
Flat top pistons in a Ford 302 to 363 engine will generally provide compression ratios in the 9.0 to 10.5:1 range which makes them a good option for engines with aluminum heads and larger than stock camshafts. Valve reliefs are configured to work with most types of standard and aluminum cylinder heads and will normally fit camshafts to well over .600 valve lift. Some are available with a dual intake valve relief for use with standard as well as Twisted Wedge cylinder heads.
Dish Top
Dish top pistons in a Ford 302 to 363 engine will generally provide compression ratios in the 8.5 to 10.0:1 range which makes them a good option for engines with aluminum heads and larger than stock camshafts. Valve reliefs are configured to work with most types of standard and aluminum cylinder heads and will normally fit camshafts to well over .600 valve lift. Some are available with a dual intake valve relief for use with standard as well as Twisted Wedge cylinder heads.
Dome Top
Dome top pistons in a Ford 302 to 363 engine will generally provide compression ratios up to 15.0:1 range which makes them a good option for competition engines.
