Thanks for all of the free bumps guys, and my good friends and their kind words. We always strive to do a superior job on anything we do, but its completely understandable there will always be a few who don't feel this way.
Anyhow we are now also keeping our stage 3 motors in stock all of the time too!
On another note the 8.7:1 CR is an average ratio between the ej255/ej257 head. This will always be somewhat dynamic depending on the head gasket used during assembly for proper clearance and the type of heads being bolted down. We have found at this CR, with proper octane the car is very responsive and transitions into boost seamlessly without having to run a lot of timing to make good power which overall will lead to a long term happier engine.
