Compression Ratio Worksheet

Use this worksheet to compute your compression ratio. You will need to already have all of the numbers in the "Input Numbers" section, either by taking
measurements or from manufacturer specifications. All of the numbers in the second section are calculated.

Input Numbers:

0.000 in Bore (diameter of the bore, in inches)

0.000 in Stroke (length of the stroke, in inches)

0.000 cc Combustion Chamber Volume (in CCs)

0.000 in Deck Height (distance from the edge of the piston to the blocks deck, in inches. For an above deck piston, use a negative number.)

0.000 in Gasket Bore (diameter of the bore in the head gasket you are using, in inches)

0.000 in Gasket Thickness (compressed thickness of the head gasket you are using, in inches)

0.000 cc Piston Relief Volume (if your piston is dished or has valve reliefs, enter the dish and/or relief volume here, in CCs; otherwise, zero)

0.000 cc Piston Dome Volume (if your piston is domed, enter the dome volume here, in CCs; otherwise zero)

Calculated Numbers:

0.000 cc Deck Volume (Bore x Bore x Deck Height x 12.87)

0.000 cc Gasket Volume (Gasket Bore x Gasket Bore x Gasket Thickness x 12.87)

0.000 cc Swept Volume (Bore x Bore x Stroke x 12.87)

0.000 cc Clearance Volume (Combustion Chamber Volume + Deck Volume + Gasket Volume + Piston Relief Volume - Piston Dome Volume)

0.000 cc Total Volume (Swept Volume + Clearance Volume)

#DIV/0! Compression Ratio (Total Volume / Clearance Volume)
