i did mine while motor was still warm to the touch (about 45 min after drivin).mine varied from 2.5 to 8.5 percent.how much would this change if motor was cold?i was hopeing these readings would be more consistant as motor has only 1500 miles,but i do drive it like i stole it and cant help it cause 6800 rpm sounds and feels so good!!!!!!!!

i was afraid i was going to get that reply.i am ussing brand new tavia tester.i would retest cylinders that read hi and they would get better by two percent.tester seems inconsistant.compression test read 185 to 200.i was wondering about ring seal longevity with these real short skirted ross pistons that oilring is into pin.they are lite by my standards at 430 grams!
