This is my 2.2.

I used the starter though, and turned it over 10 times like the instructions said on the compression tester. I imagine, if you do it that way instead of with a wrench, you will have a different result. If the engine is out of the car, you could easily jumper to the starter and use it to test the compression.

It would be a shame to spend $2000 for no reason.
