: Newer engines such as the M50, M50TU, M52, M52TU, S50/S52, M54, S54, S62, or anything higher than a 10:1 compression ratio is an interference engine.
: Heck you can remove the timing chain, leave the cams in there position without moving and turn over the engine and "clank clank clank... oh shit!"
: Hey, you can always lower the compression to 8.5:1 with a thicker head gasket but you'll have a powerloss, unless you go forced induction.
