im not sure cause my compression is 8.0bar im pretty sure its the pistons bringing it that low.

i want to run 20psi boost.but the tuner said try make sure i have low comp pistons not a low comp head gasket.

Don't think for safety reasons there are any head gaskets made by a tuning company anywhere in the world that would bring it down that much....

WOW 20psi? ... turbo power is gone to your head... :P lol , good luck
