Squish or quench area is the answer.

Sure a lot of imports do it as a cheap solution and it works fairly well on wedge heads esp if combustion chamber was set up for low boost to start. If you think of how the squish area would be shaped on a hemi with a domed piston that didn't come flush with head surface, you'll visualize a inefficient shape. A low compression "chamber" with a bad designed quench area can still be VERY prone to detonation.
