    Corsa piston build with throttle bodies

    Had a quick go before work. All cylinders went to 7bar Put a smidge of oil down there, and went right up Cylinder 1- 10bar 2-3-4 - 12bar What does this mean then? Cylinder 1 is trashed. Or is it because I’ve only done 15miles on this fresh pistons/rings Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
