And thank you in advance this has been a slow going prose's because of the long wait for my pistons. Lol

If your block has not been decked and prepared for an MLS gasket you will use a composition gasket like the felpro blue or the 1018 which is .041" thick. This leaves you a squish distance of about .060". Not exactly ideal but tolerable.

Thank you Mad Porter I appreciate it. I originally ordered speed pro pistons but my order kept getting pushed back so after 8 months of that I made the change to the Keith black pistons these 206s are different from the one's that were in it when my uncle first had it built but I didn't think they would stick down in the hole this much tho.

Those KB pistons have a 1.772" CH which is tall creating a stack height of 10.300"
Similar to the EFI pistons 93 and up via speed pro.
Any other speed pro 460 piston will sit another .018" to .020" further down the hole at TDC.

Consider yourself fortunate.
