Re: raising the compression on a 2.0 to stay N/A (1fastmk3)

I have mine shaved. Compression should be around 10.5:1. I think it was something like $35 or so. The reason i got it done was because the head was off and i figured if i could pick up a couple extra hp there i would do it. As far as gains from the milling itself, i couldn't tell you, the head was put back on with a header and a cam. But if you have the head of your car and you are planning on doing a P&P or anything like that i would definetly get it done.
