i would think TOO much compression... ive had friends try flat tops in NA motors and they were high, now add forced induction to the mix... wow

most Supercharged and Turbo-charged motors run lower compression due to the forced air in the motor, and i think Flat-tops would push it over the edge for stable/long lasting drivability, but if you just want a heart-stopping exhilarating rush down the 1/4 a couple times, go for it

let me know if im wrong at all on this, its just my 2 cents

btw, why is its always that you put in your 2 cents, but its only a penny for your thoughts? Wheres the extra penny going? dont answer just think on it hehe
