Dish top pistons in a 545/557 Ford engine will generally provide compression ratios of 10.5:1 with a 72cc head, or 10.5:1 with an 86cc head, which makes them a good option for engines with aluminum heads and larger than stock camshafts. Available pistons are configured to work with most types of standard aluminum cylinder heads with OEM valve placement, or Kaase/SCJ, and will normally fit camshafts to slightly over .730 valve lift.

Villain - Cast Crank, through-bolt rods, forged pistons, designed for stock replacement and mild performance applications.
