From what I've read, the only differance in the compression of the turbo and non-turbo 2.2l engines is the head gaskets.
Is this correct? Would'nt that mean I could put the thinner n/a gasket on my GT motor and up the compression to 8.6-1?
That would mean quicker than normal acceleration, with more torque.
If anyone has any experiance with this I really REALLY want to know.
Thanx

It could be done but you run a real risk of detonating the engine, since it wasn't designed to run that compression with boost. It's really easy to up the boost onteh 1st gen engine though. Personally I don't know how but some fo the 1st gen guys should be able to tell you.
