I have a 12:5:1 b20vtec and had it tuned on 94..I think you will be fine as long as you get the car tuned.

Personally i would call 4 piston and get their opinion first as they put the motor together.

i saw that car for sale on fb, red rsx right? **** is pretty much the perfect a/m street car. anyway, you can run 93 with 12.5 just fine. lots of guys do it. 4P built it for pump gas, you can trust itll be fine with pump gas.

Yep. Perfectly fine as long as it is well-tuned. Still have my b-series at that compression over 10 years.
