Thats why I will make a jig. So it holds the piston in the right spot every time with each piston. The special drill is a Flycutter or Endmill.

for turbo set up i would say yer
but im pritty sure you would expect something like 160-180psi maybe higher considering it au engine as well.

whats everone else compression readings at and what motor???



I have a stock '97 EL Falcon GLi wagon and I am getting around 170psi on all cylinders. Also, I just put new spark plugs and leads in, both by Bosch and can anybody tell me if I am crazy to think I got a massive power gain? Could this be or is it just my imagination? Like some kind of placebo effect?

Your car will more than likely be running better. But power increase I doubt it. Compression sounds about right
