My deckheight is 0.65mm (including the 0.25mm shim). This gave me a piston to head clearance of 1.05mm and a piston to valve clearance of 1.76mm (both measured with the solder method).

Odd that the dome volume on mine is higher than on yours. I attached a pic of the piston (its the left one).
Higher dome height *should* give higher compression, but you must make sure that the distance from the center of the rod to the top of the flat of the piston is the same. This distance is different for many pistons, and is the reason why installing the 2.2S pistons in a 2.4 motor increases the compression.
