Default ZC engine with compression 11.3:1 ???

Hi again,

In my last posts I was asking some things about the ZC engines.
The car that I can buy is with a real ZC DOHC JDM engine and it's compression is 11.3:1.
The specifications are 9.x:1 .

My question is - >
As I know it is possible the ZC to have compression ratio 11.3:1 but with changed pistons.
Please tell me is this a problem.I think that it is very high compression and wonder is it good or bad the copmression to be so high?
Thank you for the collaboration -> in advance

well if it truely has the compression you stated it would be good or bad depending on what you want to do with the engine. thats the perfect comp ratio for a nice set of cams or even a supercharger with the right tune. what exactly would you like to do with the engine would be my first question. hahahaha and whats up with the sig..........

I graduated electronics and want to work with engines.This is the reason I want to buy this car with this engine.
I have megasquirt-2(ECU) - fully realtime programmable so it will be my firs mission.
The next mission depends on how much money I'll have in future - maybe a turbo -> here I can buy a turbine (second/hand) for abot 150 USD so I guess this is what I'll do after the ECU.
