    I currently building another lsvtec and I have a p72 head and a b18b block and thinking about throwing in some ctr pistons I was told that compression would be at 12 but now im being told that the compression is goin to be at 13. I know I have to retard the timing and all but I'm thinking now this wont be a good daily driver
