Compression test...

So ya I need to slow down a bit and come back to reallity here, so before I start moding I should see if my motor can handle them. So It was araised to my attention to do a compression test... Hey! Good idea, so I was wondering what should I expect, what should normal compression be on each cylinder? Anyone know, so I have an idea what to expect...

They should be in the 130-140ish range. Spector is right that the individual cylinders being close to one another is of extreme importance.
