A proper squish clearance can give your motor 10% more power. Most aftermarket cylinder kits are not made to this close tolerance of 0.6-0.8mm proper piston clearance. We check the squish band clearance and usually have to close the gap from .18 -.13mm down to .8mm gap for proper squish band function to work properly.
