Hope you like race gas.
ummm.. no. with the right tune, you can run very high compression on pump gas. the 11.3 or so he'll be running is perfectly fine on 93 octane.

Isn't it higher than that? Like ~12.5.

You are right about the tuning part, if you can get 93. I sure as hell can't lol.

edit- Seeing around 11.8+ from what I can find, I was wrong. And if its 11.8 that can be done on 91.

I'd get stronger valve springs, you're gonna be putting alot more stress on the springs when they recoil.

Well yeah. Dual valve springs will retain more compression. It will gve you better performance and durability. The funnest thing is that you can withstand all the way up to 10k rpm!

B16 pistons will fit in a B18 block? Sorry for the noob question and thread jack, but I know jackshit about engines.
