    Basically im running an ARY engine in my s3 instead of an APY engine so now i have 9.5 to 1 comp ratio instead of 9 to 1. Can anybody think of anything that i should be wary of or look out for running higher compression? I know i have 19mm wrist pins before anybody mentions that. Just thought i would check to make sure.

    High boost will be the biggest issue... high comp ratio, high boost, higher cylinder pressure, weaker rods...

    As you have had issues with boost (in a previous thread) then cap it with an MBC...
