Any one else surprise by such a high comprssion ratio on a s/c motor

9:5:1 compression means the motor wont be able to hold much w/ boost...

Hopefully some guys get that info before they start trying to push as much boost as possible and end up wearing the engine out quick.

SRT-4 is 8.1:1

Yeah, that is kinda high. I would expect that out of the NA, but not the s/c. Doesn't Cometic make custom head gaskets? Maybe you could run a thicker gasket to give you a little more head room....but the hard part would be figuring out how to come up with the numbers for that.


That is really good info though for when time comes for a rebuild. It will happen, sooner or later.

Yeah expacailly when it goes you can alway rebuild it to take the boost.

Yep! Lower compression forged pistons for starters..then bring on the boost. :D
It's just a matter of time until tuners and the non financially challenged find out what this engine's limits are.

I think there are probably two reasons for the high static compression on the motor.

For one, when you drop compression to add boost, you lose some low-throttle performance (when you're not making boost). Not really a problem if you're talking about a 5.0L Mustang motor, but I bet this if this 2L motor were only run at 8.0:1, you'd have some drivability issues. It's slightly less of an issue on the SRT with the 2.4L (20% more displacement to make up for it).

The second is the M62 itself. It's a "smaller" unit, and as you lower static compression, the flow requirements of the S/C increase. Maybe too high for what the M62 is capable of (reliably) producing.

The stock WRX (2.0 ltr) has a CR of 8.0:1. When I was using the stock turbo, you could not feel any lag or driveability issue. But then again, the turbo was made for low end spool, but of course, top end suffered. It was not the biggest snail on the beach. So, it really comes down to the compatability to the equipment.

You got some good points. Hummm.... Who knows really why. :confused:

how much boost do u think u can run with that high of a compression ratio? I was hopin to find a 18-20 lbs pulley, i mean everything else is solid i mean it has a metal head gasket, forged crank the list goes on

i just thought of something i pulled that info out of GM SI. What if its 9:1 after boost is added?

Spoke to Chris White online tonight. Hes in research and development for the high perforamcne engines center. He said that the cars break at 14 lbs of boost. Pistons and Rods being the biggest contributors.

the 2.2L ecotec is a 10.0:1.
I'm going to try to find what these thigns run for stock boost, but hopefully someone with one will gives us an accurate number.

Just doing a google search I am still finding conflicting numbers.
Mostly I see 10-12lbs. but I have also seen anywhere from 8-10lbs also, I am thinking it's closer to the 10-12.

Here we go again ... boost does NOT equal power. In fact, there's not even any sort of linear relationship between the two WHATSOEVER. You can have a motor making 10psi producing more power than a very similar one making 15psi. It makes absolutely zero sense to say that a motor will 'break' at a certain boost pressure. FYI, people have had the Ecotecs at much more than 14psi (via either turbo or SC) without any problems.

The LSJ makes about 12lbs max in stock form.

So you're saying if I take 2 identical SRT-4's.....leave one stock and put one at 40psi. They will last the same amount of time.
Not taking a 10psi engine and a "similar" 15psi one, taking the exact same engines and testing them against each other, the exact same engine and components a 10psi version isnt going to have more power than the 15.

Yeah I am sure you can take one engine, port and polish everything, balance and blueprint everything, add water/alky injection, map clamp, injectors, different intakes and exhaust, other components the 10psi may have more power, but the exact same engine/car setup.....how will the 15psi car make less power.
Boost leaks don't count.

and boost does not equal power? so how are people going from stock boost turning it up to 19psi and they are getting quicker times or showing more hp on the dyno? are they cutting down wind resistance?
