Depends on cam, If you use an overlap cam, you bleed compression off, I was running a healthy 13.9 ;1 cr on my last engine. that on paper is far too high to be safe on the street, It worked!!, although the static comp was 13:9, the dynamic compression was nearer 11:1 (as far as I could work out) and...
