Default compreession stroke

hey guys got my bottom end together. just to make sure. i put eagle rods and vitara pistons in to drop my CR so that does mean my pistons should not go up so high on the cylinder right?

No, it means that the pistons have a dish shape that will effectively increase the size of the combustion chanber resulting in a lower CR.

The dish is actually larger with Z6 pistons, the difference comes mostly from compression height.
