Also, there should be no more than 25% difference between cylinder readings. Put in a squirt of oil to each cylinder on a retest and see if the compression readings go higher. If it does, piston rings are probably worn. If not, leaking valves or a blown head gasket might be at fault.

Did a lot of searching and there doesn't seem to be an exact number but from what I got out of it, all cylinders should be up around 150 to 180 psi.
