A fresh strong engine would be in the 120-125 range cold cranking and all holes close to equal. 100-115 is OK and will still run out good. 80-90 and I would be thinking about freshening the power head up with honing and new rings. If one or more holes is 10-15 psi lower than the others I would keep a close eye on it and maybe add a little oil to the gas to supplement the auto oil mixing.
I ain't no guru and no warranty implied:)

120 to 130 You can get bogging and a poor hole shot under that.
