Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Are you disabling the fuel system when you are doing the compression check? Also what brand spark plugs do you have?

Expert:  Jay replied 25 days ago.

Failure to disable the fuel system could wash out the cylinder walls and lower compression when doing a compression check. Compression should be around 185 high, and 142 low. So 150 would still be good, but would like to see it a little higher. That is why I am asking about the fuel system. Also let me know what brand spark plugs you have installed. These cars are very sensitive to the brand spark plugs used.
