WRX 2.0 heads on STi bottom end... Compression?
I can not find any source for a comparison between the combustion chamber volume of the 2.0 WRX head and the 2.5 STi head. The engine is assembled and the cylinder pressure is in the mid to high 170's. 173 to 178 was the spread from low to high.
Anyhow, does anyone have any idea what the compression ratio is with this combination? I'm currently contemplating tearing it apart and throwing STi heads on the motor if I'm in the mid 9's with compression.

To help out, take a look at the following:
Then read some of these threads:
Also, if you search for post in the 2.5L forum dealing with WRX heads and EJ257 you will find a plethora of examples.
To more directly answer your question, indeed the compression is higher. The estimate from the chart above is 8.87, but if the heads were surfaced at all, it would be higher. Also, if you used an aftermarket piston that is slightly lower in dish it would be even higher. Your should also be considerate of the difference between the WRX and STI cams.
