If you mean the engine's compression ratio, it's 9.5:1.
If not, then I have no idea. :)

I assume you mean how many psi of pressure when you turn the engine over using a compression tester screwed into the spark plug hole. And I don't know either. But if you're trying to determine if there is a burned valve, if you take a readings off of each of the 4 cylinders, you can tell if there is a big variance on one cylinder.

What are you trying to determine?

That's within the normal range. Anything over 140 is good.
I assume that you let it crank over at least 5 times before looking at the gage?
