    Looking good Dean! How did you decide on the 10.5:1's?

    I wanted to try boosted high compression 2.4
    But the motor I got had pistons already

    My old 2.2 seemed to love the 9.2:1
    Good low end torque and fast spool

    If all these bolt on supercharger kits (10.2:1 Cobra motor) and now junkyard LS turbo swaps work great , we've got good fuel available and the ability to tune now, might as well take advantage of it

    Yeah, there is a lot to be gained in compression, especially in off-boost street manners. As long as you run good fuel, might as well run some compression. It's basically free power.

    Well, you're really cooking along for that not being a clean pass.
