Default VVT combustion chamber- What is stock volume (CC)?

question: What is the stock CC of a VVT head?

I have been googling for the better part of an hour and most threads mention CC of 99-00 head (and even then the results arent consistant). That being said the castings arent the same, I want to make sure the VVT head is the same volume.

Details on why I need this:

I bought a refurbished VVT head as a part of a dissassembled VVT engine.

It was reportedly refurbished which included a decking which was "removing the least amount of material as possible". The papers mention decking but no mention of how much was removed.

I want to CC my combustion chamber to figure out how much decking was done but I need to be able to reference that back to stock.

Measure the height of the head instead and compare to FSM.

Agreed. A service manual will have dimensions from the block surface to the valve cover seating surface. Just place the head on something nice and flat like mdf or glass and use a caliper to measure it up.
