I was reading a discription about an 85 vette for sale on ebay. The discription indicated that 500 cars in 85 had mistakenly been given higher compression. Does anyone know more, like how much compression and what cars ?????

hmm

I didn't know aluminum head gave more compression

anyways having more compression doesn't matter does it

i was told
thats why when u do compression checks
its ok to be between 100 and 130
cuase 30 off doenst affect much,,to even notice


it doens't make since to me
is this true

i still think the more compresison ther better

The person selling the car was a GM tech and privy to the information. The car is for sale on ebay and worth a look at least for the discription.
