Thinking about raising the compression from the standard 9:1 to 9.5:1. I am not looking for massive power from this car, I just want something that is economical and comfortable to drive. My understanding of raising the compression will:
1. Increase fuel economy.
2. Better performance on and off boost
3. Increase throttle response.
4. Cost less than going Hybrid.
Only downfall might be higher combustion temps, but with a good intercooler and tuning this should not be a problem.
Has anyone else considered doing or have done this before. What are your thoughts.
