Default Issues with 01 Insight MT

got my 01 insight it only has 108,000 miles and it runs weak I check the compression and its at 60-65 psi.. @ 7/8 cranks. Cold engine why would it be so low when all others have 200-220psi is there a issue with the valves or do the rings burn up.. Do these engines go bad or not.. 1.0L

I have a complete '03 5spd engine for $650. Do NOT get a CVT engine, the CR is different and it will not Lean Burn (which has huge MPG impact).

PM me if you need more info
