Question What is the stock compression ratio on a '00 GT???

Does anyone know the stock compression ration on a '00 GT mustang?

What would be a safe compression ratio for 14-16 psi of boost? I was thinking about going with JE 17cc forged pistons. With stock heads, they should give me an 8.90:1 compression ratio. Is this good?

Thanks,
Tony

I believe it's 9:1 not sure what 17cc dished would do to your compression although I would think it would drop it down.... someone help me out here.

Question Compression ratio help!

Sinister,
That's the lowest compression pistons that I've found that JE makes. I think, but I 'm not sure, that any lower I'd have to order custom pistons from them.

Can someone help me out???

Thanks,
Tony
