Compression test.

What psi should I look for when compression testing? What's good, what's bad?

Lol way to be patient.

In my experience the number is not as important as how close they are together.

Sent from my massive johnson.

I would think you will see around 180 PSI. However just like lowflyn said it's more important to be even across each cylinder. If you think you are having a problem a cylinder "Leak Test" is better.

Jeez, jackass, some people have lives and work, not just time to sit around helping you find answers you could take command of finding yourself.

11:1 static engine will be in the 200-215 range.

The car can actually do a compression self-test but, I'll let you figure that out for yourself.

Thanks ******** lol, well after waiting 12 hours and no answer I did become impatient. I did look on other forums and googled it. But came up short on a real answer to my question. So basically look for a drastic difference in psi?

If you have to ask that last question, you shouldn't be messing around with this.

I am not certain you know the basics of running a compression test, much less the specifics for this car, based upon what you are saying here.

Finally someone that isn't uptight and knows what sarcasm is. I'm not a bad guy, just needed some info. Seems like everytime I ask for help or post a comment, I get heat from somebody.

The moron gave you your answer several posts up. It's you that decided to be rude initially and you that displayed ignorance by asking whether or not you should look for the difference.

Good luck with your work.

That is a new one...a rhetorical question on a procedure.....

Here is another gift...when you go to pull plugs, disconnect the positive batt cable first so you don't arc the main fuse and no start your car.
