Talking compression ratio?

How much is too much compression for a turbo motor?? I just checked the part number and the pistions I have come out to 10.8 to 1 on a 60cc head can i run 10lbs or is it a bad idea still trying to run 93 octane pump gas?

i personally think that is way too high. i always hear that you idealy want 8.9-9.1cr.

but im not to keen on turbos yet so not sure.

thats too high for pump gas...

race gas would run great... response would be killer, but pump is gonna equal boom
