Yeah, same pistons. The 531 head drops it about 0,5 points so the FB has 9,3:1 compression ratio.

The 531 has a more centrally placed spark plug and with that came slightly bigger combustion chambers = lower compression ratio. The FB still has 130hp though, but it could benefit from a head shave...

Oops, I got that mixed up. It's actually a B230FD which is a regular 9,8:1 compression, 116hp B230F with a 530 head and M cam but it's got EGR, pulsair, round tooth belt and squirters. :)
