    Thanks, big raider!

    I assume that 150psi is probably the "ideal" compression to shoot for, but as long as the difference between cylinders is less than 5-10% (depending on who you ask), you're not in too bad of shape.

    if compression is 200 across you will need race gas or if its 100 across you might need to re ring so im not too sure about that theory

    Well yea, I guess that was a little bit to generalized... I didn't mean it could be WAY off, I just meant if he's at 140 across it doesn't necessarily mean the motor is garbage (I hope at least, since that's what I based my decision to buy mine on, haha).

    no your good all guages are different and i recommend using a jumpbox while testing compession especially when you get into the 200psi range on a triple like mine
