Hey guys. I already looked for this topic. No Luck. Does anyone know what the compression should be on an 01 426? It has a Wiseco 12.5 to 1 pistion.

I just tested it and it has around 118 PSI.

Best way to get a status of the motor is to do a leak down test. A compression test is quite subjective to things like auto-decomp or manual, engine cranking speed and number of revolutions.
