I can't find it on here but I've read through like every post and I can't seem to find it... but someone wrote something on why you should never go below 9.5:1 compression when boosting. I was wondering if someone can give me reasons why... I have a friend whos building a DSM and I remember reading that and I told him not to go below 9.5:1 and i told him I'd print the article/post and when he read it he would believe me and do it. So if anyone would tell me why that'd be awosme. Thanks. :byye

well you can go lower if you want..

It's just that if you go lower than 9:1 you'll have trouble spooling the turbo.

DSM's and Hondas are 2 totally diff cars. DSM's are like 8.5:1 from the factory.
