Pontiac Compression Ratio Calculator

This online calculator is designed to estimate the change in compression ratio due to a change the cylinder wall bore.
These figures are helpful when using a "Desk Top Dyno" program to estimate changes in Horse Power and Torque.

Enter the Stock Cylinder Bore Diameter, the amount that the bore is increased, the stroke length.  Click the Calculate Compression button below for results.
