For your custom engine builds: Compression ratio - Boost 101

Hey there guys, just came across this really informative article on compression ratio's if you're planning to build your engine/in market to buy one for boost applications. Thought I should share it with ya'll

Ps: admins, may be move it to another section as a sticky if you feel it would help fellow forum members.

No matter how much I read up on it I still can't seem to understand compression very well

In nutshell, if you're planning on putting a blower on a street car with build engine - higher compression ratio is the way to go in my opinion. For example 11.0 for coyote motor. And lower compression for a track/drag car.

Reason: higher compression engines have more 'readily available' torque - meaning a N/A 11.0 coyote engine is capable of producing more torque on its own as compared to a N/A 9.5 coyote engine. It all depends on your application though. Now its whole another ball game when you put a blower on.

Also another ball game if you are running E85 or race gas, if you have direct port, how good your tune is, if you trust your gas station to actually put 93 in the 93 tanks etc...
