Compression test

Just did a compression test on my engine:
230-230-230-223-224-232
Whew! I thought it would be bad news, but this is not too shabby for 146k miles

Just thought I'd share

wow congrats, you have 3 230s, and the other two are very close, and when the numbers are very similar thats a realy good thing, means your engine is balanced and a ton of other good things, props!

in general, catalyst, you remove the spark plugs and get an air pressure guage, screw it in to your spark plug hole, and crank your car
