4.1ohv PSI/compression

Hello, I'm just wondering how much PSI one could put onto an xf motor?
What would be ideal compression for say 10psi?

Thank you

Re: 4.1ohv PSI/compression

Those motors run quite low comp...I think around 8.8 to 1...
10 Lp should be o/k with good tune and not much advance during peak torque...
Most std turbo motors run around 8 Lp boost...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: 4.1ohv PSI/compression

More factors go into compression ratio than boost- ie using intercooler, advancing/retarding timing, fuel used, future plans etc.
But around 8 seems to be the go.
