Re: best boost compression????

depends on the purpose. street or drag, what fuel. I run 9.5-1 on My turbo car (not a ford) and recommended is 8.5. 94 octane is good for the street but when road racing I use 104 just to be on the safe side. But again, depends on the purpose.

Re: best boost compression????

It's in the combination?? But I would use 8.5 but if using bigger cam and block is strong up to it 9 to 1.. On alloy heads...
