    Are there any places that make high compression pistons for the 1.6 or 1.9?
    I'd take anything between 10:1 and 12.5:1 for standard bore 1.6s and 1.9s with hemi heads. They'd be for my next two builds: a 1.6 HO with bike carbs and a 1.9 EFI HO with bike carbs :D

    Ford (Motorsport) used to sell 12.5:1 high-dome pistons for the 1.6s in the early 80s, needless to say they no longer exist lol

    The 1.9 HO head on a 2.0 SPI short block should give over 10:1, but there's a fair bit to make it work.
