Something to think about - 7:1 static compression ratio with .8bar boost = 12.52 effective compression ratio . . . make that 1.0bar boost and now you are at 13.9 ECR . . . that is a significant bump in ECR . . . that bump will increase combustion chamber temps, so it is a good idea to lower the incoming charge air temp, with a better than OEM intercooler and/or water-methanol injection, in order to offset that increase (helps to lesson the likelihood of detonation).
What is ECR?
