Re: which is worse?
If you have an ALKY motor, too much quench is a ngative thing...altho not entirely bad.
If you have a propane motor, not enough compression is a negaive thing...altho not bad.
Assuming you have a gas motor, with aluminum heads, 11.25:1 is pushing it on a perfect tune....and Ive seen 25 quench on an 8.5:1 motor.
Does this help? you can run upto 25 quench on the street if you have the chambers contoured and the pistons cut right. You cant have too much compression cause you can add more octane.
