Default 96 pistons in a 95 block - any issues?

Any fitment issues? Is there any change in compression to be expected (increasing or decreasing CR)?

Starting with the 3/95 start of the ODB-II implementation (VIN 14193) the pistons were changed with a slight dome to increase the compression ratio to an actual 9.0:1. The '94-3/95 pistons were factory rated at 9.0:1 but actually was around 8.8.

94 vs 96 piston
