Not too weird.... You cannot make compression in a 70cc combustion chamber with a flat top piston. Especially with the smallish diameter of our pistons. A SBC or SBF has a 4.00 bore and 57 to 62 cc chambers that net 9.0 to 10.0 compression... At 3.565 it even more difficult to make more than that with a minor dome.
