How To's


Compression


Low Compression vs. High Compression

The short version for a neon related application is low compression would be if you have a turbo and high compression if is for all motor. High compression can be used with a turbo, but overall this would be the rule of thumb for a lasting engine.

Compression is the ratio between the volume of the cylinder, when the piston is at the bottom of its stroke, and the volume when the piston is at the top of its stroke.

In a turbocharged or supercharged engine, the compression ratio is about 9:1 or lower. In an all motor car it could exceed 15:1.

Normal ratios for stock neons:

95-99 Single Cam (SOHC)
9.8:1

95-99 Dual Cam (DOHC)
9.6:1

*exceptions would be on improve emissions cars that are 9.3:1 instead of 9.8:1
