    depends on your pistons or cams, your question is wayy to general. do some reading on the internet about how engines work. you might find some good base info at http://www.howstuffworks.com

    the higher the compression, the more force that will be place on the top of the piston every time cumbustion occurs. this will force the pistons down harder which will make the crank turn faster and harder , which in turn will give you more power. that is basically what goes on.


    yes you will need new valve springs if you upgrade the cams.

    you don't have to change the springs out, it's recommended and you should, but you don't have to(depending on cam and application).
