Yeah, mostly that high of compression would destroy an engine, but honda engines have a lupehole for this rule.. Because of the small combustion chambers they are very detonation resistant allowing me to run very high compression on very low octane. Its alot of fun lol, i was just ripping it ouside my house a neighbor called and told me to keep it down that lived half a mile away XD

Probably with lpg and water injection you can run even higher compression .

wow, 13:1... I have heard that exceptions can be had with aluminum heads and efficient cooling systems, but WOW, hard to believe 13:1 is usable... I bet it has a lot to do with cam overlap and such.

its actually running on stock cam. If i get a larger lift cam it will lower the compression ratio down to about 12.5 to 1 because of the overlap it will "bleed" off some compression. Wich is the main reason i have it at such high compression at the moment. 12.3-8 is what im looking for after the large lift/duration cam
