B18B1 Compression Test Results - Yay or Nay?

I ran the compression test on my 1995 B18B1 with approx 190,000 km's on it. Results are as follows:

Cylinder 1 - 170
Cylinder 2 - 180
Cylinder 3 - 170
Cylinder 4 - 170

Are those results consistent with a healthy motor?

Any feedback will be appreciated.

ThanX.

Anything higher than 180 would theoretically cause gasoline to combust prior to full TDC anyhow. Obviously that doesn't happen because that number is in a perfect world.


The results are good, rock on.

Check your valve lash too!! I had 60 psi on one cylinder cause the lash was set improperly...
