Default Honda d series engine question?

I have a 94 civic Vx which is almost completely restored.I did a compression test and got from 1-4. 95 125 125 125 psi I was told that's low for a d series.what should the psi be I can't find that info anywhere. Didn't do the oil test with it cuz I didn't know of it at the time. Hoping its a head gasket replacement if not a valve job hopefully no internal engine work needed.

they should be much higher. my 94 accord makes about 185 psi and the compression ratio is 8.8 to 1.... a d series compression ratio is about 9.5 to 1 this means it should be higher than my accord.

Engine compression

Min psi: 135

Max psi: 185

Variance: 28

VARIANCE(psi) is the highest allowable difference between the LOWEST & the HIGHEST cylinder pressures.

If you want to pin point what the problem is. Perform a leak down test.

Hope you fix that eg soon. Vx is a very nice commuter car. Canada built. Lol
