Okay so went to autobarn asked for a compression test kit for my engine they looked at me as if to say wat the fuck are you talking about...said they'd never heard of such thing..I basically laughed and walked out...I guess supercheap or repco is the next bet???

Supercheap have ones that you screw in like a spark plug for about $40, and ones that you push into the spark plug hole for about $30.

best of getting a screw in comp tester, more accurate, and lot easier to use on most engines.

Autobarn has them I bought one from there a few weeks ago...

Stupid idiots... just ask for a compression tester. It looks like a tyre gauge with a spark plug thread on the other end. I've never heard of a 1 use one.... that would suck if you had a 8 cyl engine :)
