Default Volvo combustion chamber

I got this photo of a Volvo combustion chamber from a Bilsport article posted here. See those divots in the side of the chamber? Used to create turbulence for a better burn is what I was informed they are for by folks here on the board. Putting in a turbulence causing area is probably something manufacturers have used for a long time.

Hope the experiment works well for ya Les.
