Sorry, I meant a leak-down, not a compression test. The leak down can tell you where the leak is. Leak down is the brains of the bunch, compression is the dumb test.

Restore claims to help with compression, free horse power, nightly ********, yada yada yada but I figured I'd give it a shot last oil change. I don't have any compression numbers to compare but it definitely smokes less now. Mine smokes a little at high rpms but I can tell a noticable difference after using it. By no means is it a fix but seems to help with smoke atleast.

If you are NA, I would stay away from machine shops as much as possible. Try to keep all same components, assuming head is fine just do rings, bearings, seals, HG and done with it.
