    Appear reasonable if a bit higher leakdown/lower compression than mine. Some variation test to test caused by operator variances, engine temp, no of times it is spun etc. Net, net, I think the results are reasonable. I've been told anything over 12% on leakdown and +/- 10 psi on compression is a bit of a worry. Your results are within these tolerances.

    Leakdown and compression numbers by themselves are not terribly useful, as there are a number of factors that can affect the resulting numbers. What is truly important is are the numbers consistent and equal across the range - which they are. That is good.
