If I remeber correctly, each pound of boost adds something like 0.3 points to the effective compression ratio.
So if you start with say 7.0:1 (stock 930) and boost it 1.0 bar you end up with an effective comression ratio of 11.2:1 which is at the limit given the combustion technology of the 930 engine.
This may seem a bit simplistic, that the relationship is liear, but I would use that mathmatical logic if building an engine myself.
Corky Bell goes into this very well in his book Maximum Boost.
