L78 396-what's the factory piston specs

My question is simple. The L78 375HP/396, I know that it had a dome piston that was TRW forged. The question is, what was the amount of dome either in inches or CC???? Thanks in advance!!

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

OK, Phenominal. That's the info I needed. Thanks everyone! Now I just need to re-work a formula that'll make it a little more user friendly on the street with today's garbage fuel. I'll get it though. I appreciate y'all!!
