Okay just finished the compression test of the current engine. Pleasantly surprised. I have read the following info and do not know if it is true or not but if so I am even more please.
1. More aggressive cam will lead to lower numbers, I have M3 cams in here.
2. Minimum E36 should be 142-156? I got 190 to 200 across all 6 cylinders.
3. You want the numbers to be within 85% and there is a conversion chart for altitude on Pelican parts. I am right on the water so probably less than 100 ft.
Hope all this helps to sell this when the time comes.
Cylinders in order, 195, 190, 190, 195, 195, 200

Now back to pulling some crap apart
