    Does anyone know how much horsepower is gained by going .40 over?

    Also if you bump the compression up one full point. What should we be looking at?

    your not going to gain that much by going .40 over-maybe a couple more footlbs, and as far as the full point of compression I think it's like 10hp, but can anyone else verify this for me, not qiute sure.

    The rule I hear most of the time is approximately 4% per full point of compression. You can't go with a "10 hp per point" rule... what if someone has a 500hp engine and wants to raise compression one point?

    yeah, I figured it was a percentage but like I said I wasn't sure. Thanks for the input Calesta, bastard :)
