Also, it doesn't matter if you're talking a 6-71 or 10-71 blower, you need to be looking at boost pressure, that's what will increase your static c.r. to higher effective c.r. Meaning an 9.0:1 static c.r., with 10 pounds of boost will net you an effective c.r. of 15.1:1.
Boost adds dignity to what would otherwise be a vulgar brawl...
