Big Block Chevy Cylinder Heads
Open vs. Closed Chamber - A good way to describe big-block heads is to categorize them as open or closed chamber. Closed-chamber cylinder heads have small combustion chamber volumes for high compression ratios, with even mildly domed pistons. Open-chamber designs are larger and provide lower compression ratios, so require a much larger piston dome to achieve the same compression as a closed-chamber head.
Use of either style head requires that the correct pistons are used, otherwise...
