What are your thoughts on the whistle gauge? I have heard that they are sometimes half a point of compression off. If you tech guys out there whistled a guy at 10.1:1 compression, when the limit is 10:1, would you tear him down if he requested it? That is if he said his engine was 100% sure his engine was built legal? Just curious.

I WOULD NAIL HIS AZZ TO THE WALL FOR CHEATING!!!! no im just jokin i would probably tell him to watch it and if someone requested a tear down for his car i would have to find him illegal because he was protested. I THINK THAT LITTLE OVER THE RULES WONT CHANGE A THING!!!

I was checked after the feature and checked 9.1:1. They let it cool for an hour and a half, then checked 8.9:1. They said that was O.K. Just up to your tech guys.
