I have read that the easiest and quickest way to raise the compression on a TR6 is to bolt on a GT6 head.Can anyone confirm if this is accurate information.And is there any particular GT6 head that works beat.
Thanks
Mike

That'd be quick alright. Also give you around 12 to 1 compression ratio.
Not a good idea.

As Mitch said, kinda. The early GT6 heads had a deck height of 3.3" with flat pistons. Bolting one of those on a TR6 will result in super high compression ratio. The later GT6 heads had a deck height of 3.4" with domed pistons. The 3.4 is the same height as the PI (fuel injected) 2.5L cars so it should work to give a compression ratio of 9.5 to 1.

This link will help. Best to look at casting number when considering a head and then MEASURE deck height..... if a later GT6 head has been shaved you're into hc territory pretty quick.
