Compression ration question...

Fellow 930'ers,

No doubt documented somewhere, but what is the CR for a Turbo when it is on full boost?

For example, say your car is 8:1 CR off boost and you're running a 1 bar spring. Does that mean that at full boost you have doubled the atmospheric pressure and therefore doubled the CR to 16:1?

I'd imagine there would be some losses and you wouldn't really double the air pressure going into the motor but what's the final result going to be?

Boost Addiction - honestly, I have it under control
