Non-turbo pistons in a turbo motor (?)
Just bought an 85 Daytona turbo for a song. Has a new long block but a messed up head gasket. (Genius used silicon sealant when installing it) Replaced the gasket and noticed that the pistons were not dished pistons, but are stamped with .050 in. and the pistons do have valve reliefs. Do I need to be concerned with the compression being too high, or does the larger bore and running premium fuel make up for the difference. The head does have the stellite valves btw. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
