In a few days I'm going for the 8.5:1 C/R gasket. I'm running 4 to 5 psi most with high compression 10,3 to be exact (past head shaving) with no problems for now but no fuel. When I change the gasket, I was thinking about increasing the boost up to 10psi. Will I damage the engine without any fuel management? The fuel management is coming on christmas (no money now). What do you think? Should I run more psi or leave it at 5 and when the fuel management is in, then boost more?

You need fuel management, period. I run 10psi with the stock compresion of 10 to 1 and no real engine management, just tib maf and injectors. If you had the fuel upgrades you could safely up the boost a few psi now...

If you drop the compression I would say thats would be alright so long as its getting proper fuel.....

japakos, do you have the 1.3l? If so your internals should be fine at 1.0 bar. They are the same strength as the larger Alpha's internals I believe, but with lower stock power output. All other Alphas can hold up to 1.0 bar while producing more power as long as you have proper fuel management and reduced c/r on stock internals.
