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.

From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

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