    I want to have my engine built for boost

    I was considering a 8:5:1 ratio Should I go lower? Higher? BUHLER?

    more and more people are running a little bit higher compression on their turbo motors now a days. The key is to fine tune it. I have seen many heavy boosted motors running 10+compression ratios but then again these are all out 1320 cars. I would suggest going with 9.0:1, this seems the be the standard when most upgrade to aftermarket pistons for their turboed hondas.

    8.5:1 is simply too low. the car will be a bitch off boost.
    look in the 9-9.5 range for a daily driver, and a 10:1 for a race car
