I am still in need of a measuring device, but it seems as if the other piston's squish pads are slightly shorter. I will measure them and have the height differences corrected.
You would be safe if you remove the entire squish pad. The pistons seem to be flush in the block on the pictures and only squish pads are above deck.
That is correct. I'm just a little concerned about how it will run with out them
The EG motors ran without them and had no issues. It will drop your compression a tiny bit, but that can be calculated once measured.
I always have felt that the CR was a little high, the car pinged quite badly at lower altitudes and I ran much slower ignition timing than before. Last time I set the timing to 3° and its still pinging. Anything lower and the power dropped dramatically.
So now I have a plan.
