    1. how high of compression can you safely spray, say a 50 shot in a gsr block?
    2. how much compression before i need to get new rods?
    3. how much power/or compression will shot peening the rods hold?

    With my new setup when i install everything ill be runnin 10:5:1 compression with oversize arias pistons , 82mm. I wouldnt wanna go higher than that, just my preference. With a setup like that u can spray a 75 easy, here is my new setup which i will be sprayin a 75 shot with.
    CTR intake cam
    stiffened springs
    type-r intake valves
    Arias pistons
    zex kit
    BBK fuel pump
    B&M fpr and a bottle pressure guage
    SAFC
    with all my new mods and the ones i have i think itll bring my hp up from my current 155 whp, to about 170 if im lucky with the b16, with the 75 shot i should be good for 12"s if i can hook.
